Abstract:

Influenza B is a common respiratory infection that typically presents with upper respiratory tract symptoms and systemic symptoms. Neurological complications due to influenza B infection are rare. This case report describes a 54-year-old male who presented neurological complication post viral illness. He was screened for infectious, inflammatory, neoplastic, paraneoplastic and metabolic causes all of which came back negative apart from Influenza B infection and chronic Hepatitis C infection. The radiological imaging was diagnostic of inflammatory polyradiculopathy involving multiple cranial nerves and the brachial plexus. His neurological symptoms gradually improved following a course of Tamiflu. We hereby present a case of inflammatory polyradiculopathy post Influenza B infection. This case highlights the importance of considering neurological complications in patients with influenza B infection and the need for timely diagnosis and management.
