Guillain-Barré Syndrome and SARS-Cov-2 (COVID-19)

Takeaway

  • COVID-19 infection may be a trigger for Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS).

Why this matters

    GBS is suggested to be a post-infectious disorder, which arises due to viral or bacterial infection. Thus, better understanding of COVID-19 and its links to the subsequent development of GBS are of great importance. With early treatment offering better outcomes, more awareness around this pathogen and association with GBS is needed.
