What is Guillain-Barré Syndrome?

Description of the disease

Guillain-Barré Syndrome, also known as Landry's paralysis, is a rare neurological disorder that affects the peripheral nervous system. It is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the myelin, the sheath that surrounds nerves in the body.


  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome type I
  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome type II


  • Weakness in the legs or arms
  • Feeling of tingling or burning in the limbs
  • Loss of coordination
  • Muscle pain or spasms


The cause of Guillain-Barré Syndrome is still unknown, but it is believed that the immune system starts attacking the nervous system due to some viruses or bacteria.


Diagnosis of Guillain-Barré Syndrome is based on symptoms, physical examination, and laboratory tests such as blood and nerve tissue analysis.


Treatment includes physiotherapy, rehabilitation, and medications aimed at relieving symptoms and supporting the function of the nervous system.


Since the cause of Guillain-Barré Syndrome is unknown, there are no specific preventive methods, but strengthening the immune system and preventing viral infections may help reduce the risk of developing the disease.


Guillain-Barré Syndrome is treated by a neurologist.
