Guillain Barre syndrome

Guillian Barre syndrome is a common demyelinating disease of spinal and peripheral nerves. Also known as acute idiopathic polyneuritis or symmetrical polyneuritis. The clinical manifestations are progressive ascending symmetrical paralysis, quadriplegia, and sensory disorders in varying degrees. Most patients can recover completely after acute or subacute clinical course, and a few serious cases can cause fatal respiratory paralysis and bilateral facial paralysis. Cerebrospinal fluid examination showed typical protein increase and normal cell number, also known as protein cell separation. The main clinical syndrome is weakness of the limbs, especially the weakness of the lower limbs and inability to walk. Therefore, it is also called "impotence". Those with muscle pain are called "flaccid arthralgia"; Those with cranial nerve damage, such as glossopharyngeal, vagal and hypoglossal nerve paralysis, have difficulty swallowing, which is called "choking syndrome"; Facial paralysis is called "mouth remote" and so on.
