One of the neurological complications associated with COVID-19 is Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS). It is possible to be a complication of COVID19 due to the similarity of respiratory complication between both clinical entities. The aim of this case report is to present a case followed in the intensive care unit (ICU) with the coexistence of prolonged COVID-19 and GBS. The 68-year-old patient, whose COVID-19 symptoms had been going on for 5 weeks, was followed for 5 days in the ICU due to GBS diagnosis. During this period, the patient's symptoms regressed with IVIG treatment. ICU physicians should be careful that some neurological complications may accompany in some prolonged COVID-19 cases and that one of these may be GBS.
