Resumo: This article reviews the clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and current therapy of four neurologic diseases currently believed to be autoimmune in etiology: myasthenia gravis, Guillain-Barré syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and Reye's syndrome. Nursing care of these patients is very challenging and crucial to the survival and prevention of further complications. Nursing interventions for the potential problems faced by these individuals are described.
