Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS) is a rare autoimmune inflammatory polyneuropathy with established acute phase morbidity and mortality. Despite the positive outcome in majority of cases, there is hesitance in subjecting these patients to major surgical interventions under general anaesthesia. This case documents the successful undertaking of major coronary artery grafting under cardiopulmonary bypass and general anaesthesia, in a GBS patient. A review of the pathology is presented and the controversy addressed.
