Autor(es): Chan Louis Yik-Si; Tsui Michelle Hang-Yuet; Leung Tse Ngong

Resumo: Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) complicating pregnancy is a rare event. Reports before the mid-1980s suggested that GBS in pregnancy carries a high maternal morbidity and mortality. However, it is uncertain whether availability of active treatment such as plasmapheresis and intravenous immunoglobulin together with advancement in intensive care has improved maternal outcome. This review examines the maternal and fetal outcomes of GBS complicating pregnancy reported in the recent English literature.
