Özet

Background and purpose: As they are mainly performed at distal nerve parts, routine electrophysiological examinations can fail to detect the abnormalities at the early stage of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) because of predominant involvement of proximal nerve segments. Measurements focused on proximal conduction can provide additional findings. We investigated the diagnostic significance of motor root conduction time (MRCT) at the early stage of GBS.
