I clicked on the link for the Medscape article and was directed to a member log in page. hmmm, forgot my id and password. Recovered and reset them, respectively.

For those with sign in trouble the two bottom lines for me were-

“Because AMAN generally follows a similar clinical course as AIDP, IVIG and PE are assumed to be appropriate treatment interventions, especially in patients with severe presentations.”


“Currently, it is unknown if IVIG is the most appropriate therapy for AMSAN. However, given the severe nature of this variant and the current lack of data, the use of IVIG or PE should be considered as rational treatment options in patients with AMSAN, as with the other GBS variants.[33] ”
