This potentially life-threatening disease poses an interesting perspective on adverse events that can occur or can be exacerbated following the Ad26.COV2.S (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine. The authors report findings in a 65-year-old female patient who experienced facial diplegia, an atypical variant of Guillain-Barré syndrome, two weeks after receiving the Ad26.COV2.S vaccine against coronavirus disease 2019. Post-approval pharmacovigilance of each vaccine helps better understand the long-term outcomes, and reporting adverse events is crucial for advancements in medical knowledge.
