Guillain-Barré syndrome is one of the neurological disorders that results from an autoimmune peripheral motor neuropathy following bacterial or viral infections. The pathology involves demylination and axonal degeneration caused by autoantibodies leading to a progressive symmetrical weakness. Respiratory muscle paralysis can complicate the course of the disease leading to high morbidity and mortality.
