Guillain Barre Syndrome is an acute immune mediated polyneuropathy. We conducted a prospective study in Neurology Department, Mayo Hospital, Lahore to evaluate different electrophysiological patterns in Guillain Barre Syndrome. A total of 25 cases were registered over the period of one year and nerve conduction and electromyography was done on each patient. The break down of different patterns of neuropathy was 36% demylinated, 12% axonal and 52% of mixed variety having both demylinating and axonal components. From our study we conclude that pattern of neuropathy in GBS is nearly same as reported in most European and local studies except Chinese endemic cases where axonal form is more frequent.
