The number of patients undergoing bariatric surgery increases every year, as obesity has become a major cause of several comorbidities. The frequency of complications associated with this procedure has been increasing. Here, we present a case of 32-year-old male with ataxia and peripheral polyneuropathy after a sleeve gastrectomy procedure, who went on to develop progressive weaknesses in the extremities within a duration of 8 months after surgery, and was admitted to hospital for neurological consultation and treatment. The case report highlights the symptoms that bariatric surgeons must detect and review the treatment.
