Guillain-Barré Syndrome is a disease that presents with a progressive clinical course starting with loss of strength in the lower extremities and is challenging to diagnose. It is crucial to make the diagnosis early and not delay treatment to prevent the development of respiratory system involvement. Spinal tuberculosis (Pott's disease), the extrapulmonary involvement of tuberculosis in the vertebrae, may similarly present with loss of strength and sensation in the lower extremities due to spinal symptoms. Here, we presented a 12-year-old girl who presented to our pediatric emergency department with paraparesis.
