Background: Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) has shown numerous challenges to modern medicine in the 21st century. Several systemic signs and symptoms have been observed during and after post-COVID-19 Infection including post-viral (COVID-19) fatigue syndrome (PVFS) among 10% of people as well as an autoimmune neurological disease with ascending sensory motor weakness. 

Objectives: To analyze nerve conduction study to observe the pattern of axonal and demyelinating sensory-motor polyradiculopathy retrospectively after the subject has covid -19.

Method: 42 retrospective electrodiagnosis report was studied who have had covid -19 with predominant bilateral progressive weakness in the lower extremities. The tested nerves are the median, and ulnar in the upper limb and the peroneal, sural, and tibia in the lower limb. In the peroneal nerve f- wave velocity and latency are considered.

Result: The prevalence of GBS has increased after covid -19 outbreak. A retrospective study shows Reduce Amplitude of compound muscles' action potential (except tibial and sural nerve), Normal Latency in both lower and upper limb nerves, Reduction in NCV in all the reported nerves except sural nerve, F- wave observers prolonged and absent in several cases. 

Conclusion: To reduce morbidity and mortality after covid -19 electrodiagnostic studies of the nerves is one of the helpful methods to rule out an autoimmune neurological disease like GuillainBarre syndrome 

Keywords: Neurological Autoimmune Disease, COVID-19, Axonal and Demyelinating sensorimotor Polyradiculoneuropathy
