Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute, rapidly evolving areflexic motor paralysis with or without sensory disturbance. It occurs year around at a rate of between 1 and 4 cases per 100,000 annually. Increasing data indicate that it is an autoimmune disease, often triggered by a preceding viral or bacterial infection with organisms such as Campylobacter jejuni, Helicobacter pylori, or Mycoplasma pneumoniae. Vaccination against the flu, rabies, and meningitis are also documented precipitating factors that have been reported. Investigations include Electromyography, CSF studies and serum CK levels. To date, treatment for GBS has been aimed primarily at immunomodulation (IVIG). Mamsa-Medogata Vata is the condition that can be categorized under GBS due to proximity of their clinical presentation.
