In brief: Miller Fisher

Miller fisher syndrome is a rare variant of guillain-barre syndrome, which is a disease affecting the nervous system of patients.
Basically, it is an autoimmune process whereby the body produces antibodies that attack the nerve cells, and it may be triggered by a viral infection. Problems with eye movement, muscle weakness, and loss of deep tendon reflexes occur.
