Early Guillain-Barré syndrome without inflammation

Autor(es): Ropper A H,Adelman L

Resumo: A patient with typical acute Guillain-Barré syndrome died 72 hours after his first symptoms occurred, and an autopsy was performed 8 hours after his death. Extensive sampling of cranial and peripheral nerves, sensory ganglia, and autonomic nerves showed only minimal inflammatory lymphocytic and macrophage infiltrates. This case, one of the earliest studied extensively, represents an extreme example of a noninflammatory mechanism that has been proposed in some cases of Gullain-Barré syndrome.
