Macro and micro nutritional deficiencies may occur in some bariatric patients post surgery, which can result in serious neurological complications. We present the case of a patient who developed polyradiculoneuropathy a variation of acute inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy or - guillain-barre syndrome or apgars-acute post gastric reduction surgery neuropathy following laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery. We discuss the importance of identifying symptoms of polyradiculoneuropathy (prn) or apgars after bariatric surgery and give recommendations for treatment.
