- Miller Fisher syndrome;
Abstract: We describe the case of a six-year-old girl who presented with a 3-day history of diplopia and gait disturbance following a febrile flu-like illness. On examination she was found to have ataxia, areflexia and ophthalmoplegia, and a diagnosis of Miller Fisher syndrome was made after the exclusion of other conditions. This report outlines the frequency of Miller Fisher syndrome and lists the differential diagnoses that should be considered in Australia. In addition, the occurrence of pupillary dysfunction is discussed.
