Presented BySarada Sakamuri, MD

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare neurological disorder in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks part of its peripheral nervous system—the network of nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord. GBS can range from a very mild case with brief weakness to nearly devastating paralysis, leaving the person unable to breathe independently. Fortunately, most people eventually recover from even the most severe cases of GBS.  After recovery, some people will continue to have some degree of weakness.

Desired Outcomes:

  • Identify signs of symptoms of Guillain Barre syndrome (GBS)
  • Describe tests involved in early diagnosis of GBS
  • Describe immunotherapy and supportive treatment for GBS in the acute setting
