Miller-Fisher syndrome is a rare variant of Guillain-Barre syndrome comprising:

  • ataxia
  • ophthalmoplegia
  • areflexia

Like the Guillain-Barre, the Miller-Fisher syndrome is a post-infective polyneuropathy, with the nerves supplying the ocular muscles most often affected.

It has a good prognosis.
