Tick paralysis syndrome (TPS) is an uncommon cause of ascending paralysis in children. Familiarity with its clinical features is important, since prompt diagnosis and removal of the tick is curative. We report the case of a 5-year-old girl with TPS manifested as lower extremity ataxia and paralysis and briefly discuss the salient features of TPS.
