Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is an inflammatory polyradiculoneuropathy associated with numerous viral infections. Since corona virus disease-2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in January 2020, several pieces of evidence suggested an association between the spectrum of GBS and severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARSCoV-2). As physiotherapy plays an important role in rehabilitation of GBS patient as well as COVID-19 cases, the rehabilitation from acute and post-acute phase up to and including functional recovery depends majorly on physiotherapy interventions. This case report discusses the medical and physiotherapy management of such patient briefly and describes the process from acute care to functional recovery.
