Abstract

A 64-year-old female presented with ptosis, ophthalmoplegia, ataxia, and weakness. She was diagnosed with Miller Fisher syndrome (MFS) and was treated with plasmapheresis. Six months later, she developed bilateral oculomotor synkinesis, suggesting aberrant regeneration. The pathogenesis of MFS is reviewed in light of this unusual finding.
