Ethics approval and consent to participate
: Ours is a retrospective report of a complication of regular treatment approach to Guillain–Barré syndrome. Thus ethical approval and consent to participate are not relevant. The Institutional Review Committee has been informed regarding the submission of this case report to Journal of Medical Case Reports.
: In our case, the patient being in tracheostomy couldn't verbalise the consent. Further, in our country Nepal, the social values are such that the consent of patient's first degree relatives (in our case patient's wife) is counted more strongly than the consent of the ailing patient himself.Thus, for all the purpose ranging from treatment, decision of mechanical ventilation, consent for tracheostomy, and finally the consent for publication of this case report was obtained from patient's wife. However, at all times during this decision making, patient was also informed of the proposed treatment/plan and his assertion was obtained.
