Hi, I have a case study question:

traveller to southeast Africa complains of
- irregular
- unilateral (right)
- ascending (begins in lower extremity)
- paralysis with paresthesias
- diminished deep tendon reflexes
- right sided facial numbness and tingling
- elevation in WBC initially, now back to within normal range.

Can't be tick because of sensory component.

Any thoughts?
