Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) is an acute inflammatory polyneuropathy. In this report, we present a 3-year-old girl diagnosed with cortical and subcortical hemorrhage during the course of GBS who was treated with intravenous immunoglobulin. To the best of our knowledge, central nervous system hemorrhage during the course of GBS is an extremely rare condition. We believe that all clinicians following patients with GBS or using intravenous immunoglobulin for any indications should be aware of this rare but potentially life-threatening condition.
