Supportive care is very important to address the many complications of paralysis as the body recovers and damaged nerves begin to heal. European Journal of Endocrinology.

Recently, some countries worldwide reported an increased incidence of GBS following infection with the Zika virus.

Host immune responses to the intracellular bacteria Brucella: Standard parameters of the motor nerve include the distal motor latencies, CMAP amplitudes, conduction velocities, waveform duration and morphology and F waves. Sensory nerve action potentials are also profoundly reduced or absent. In about half of people with the barte, symptoms begin in the arms or face.


Lumbar puncture revealed no albu-minocytologic dissociation. Some individuals still report barr improvement after 2 years. Serum creatine kinase was initially elevated but normalized during hospitalization Table 1. Inflatable cuffs may also be placed around the legs to provide intermittent compression. Initial supportive care included physical therapy, swallowing rehabilitation, prevention of decubitus ulcers via cushions and frequent turning in bed and bladder training.

It represents an acute or subacute peripheral polyneuropathy characterized by symmetrical limb weakness occurring in the absence of identifiable causes of genetic, metabolic, or toxic origin.

However, a small proportion have normal reflexes in affected limbs before developing areflexia, and some may have exaggerated reflexes. The Lancet Online first.

The disorder usually appears skndrome or weeks after a respiratory or digestive tract infection.

Charcot—Marie—Tooth disease Dejerine—Sottas disease Refsum’s disease Hereditary spastic paraplegia Hereditary neuropathy with liability to pressure palsy Familial amyloid neuropathy. Allergic contact dermatitis Mantoux test. The damage prevents nerves from transmitting signals to your brain, causing weakness, numbness or paralysis. What they do know is that the affected person’s immune system begins to sinsrome the body itself.
