We describe the first two European cases of acute axonal motor neuropathy with both IgG and IgA anti-GD1a antibodies following Campylobacter enteritis. Both patients acutely developed severe weakness without sensory involvement, had antibodies to Campylobacter jejuni and polyclonal IgG and IgA titers > or = 12,800 to GD1a at onset, which decreased during follow-up. Serial electrophysiologic studies showed: 1, normal or only slightly slowed motor conductions; 2, evidence of a progressive loss of… CONTINUE READING
