Gbs – Tm

June 5, 2007 at 8:51 am


The CSF should have shown oligoclonal bands with TM. If the CSF was absent of oligoclonal bands, and all other cell levels normal, then it would appear you may have GBS (if they checked for the bands). Influenza vaccine has caused both GBS and TM. However, evidence of TM may be seen in MRI’s too.

I got a flu shot, then got GBS, then also got TM. Mine didn’t change from GBS to TM…I had both. The GBS progressed to CIDP and the diagnosis of CIDP and TM was made by the Chief of Neurology, and Professor of Neurology at the University of Louisville…at that time.

Best regards.
