Autor(es): Wilmshurst J. M.; Pohl K. R.; Vaughan R. W.; Hughes R. A.

Resumo: There are few reports of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) occurring in families. We have encountered a mother, who developed acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy at age 35 years, whose son developed the bulbar form of GBS 7 years later. Both shared HLA DR2.
