Abstract: Fourteen consecutive cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome were examined for straight leg raising sign (Laseque's sign). Thirteen were positive (93%). The high percentage illustrates the importance of looking for this sign in all suspected cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome where the underlying pathology is an acute inflammation and demyelination of nerve roots.
