BLANCO-MARCHITE, C.I. et al. Miller Fisher Syndrome, internal and external ophthalmoplegia after flu vaccination. Arch Soc Esp Oftalmol [online]. 2008, vol.83, n.7, pp.433-435. ISSN 0365-6691.
Case report: Miller Fisher Syndrome (MFS) is the most frequent variant of the Guillain-Barré Syndrome. It is characterised by the classic triad of ophthalmoplegia, ataxia and areflexia. We present a case of a patient who developed these clinical findings 5 days after flu vaccination. Discussion: Miller Fisher Syndrome is an unusual condition seen in ophthalmologic clinical practice. Although respiratory and digestive infections have been reported as antecedent infectious agents in MFS, it has not previously been described in relation to the flu vaccine.
