Dengue fever is an important public health problem in India and has various serious manifestations, which if not identified and treated at appropriate time can lead to dire consequences. Quadriparesis during the course of dengue infection is quite unusual and rarely reported. The authors hereby report a case of acute motor quadriparesis due to Guillain–Barre syndrome during the course of dengue infection, who showed gradual response to conservative treatment.
