Acute motor axonal neuropathy
Acute motor axonal neuropathy (AMAN) is a variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome with predominant motor axon dysfunction or injury, and it is strongly associated with antecedent Campylobacter jejuni infection and the presence of anti-ganglioside antibodies. AMAN presents as an acute, flaccid, symmetrical ascending paralysis with increased cerebral spinal fluid protein, suggesting Guillain-Barré syndrome. Sensory impairment is minimal, and autonomic involvement less common.
