Guillain-Barre syndrome in children
Pediatric presentation of Guillain-Barré syndrome differs from that of adults with predominant symptoms of gait ataxia or pain, and a higher incidence of cranial nerve abnormalities. Weakness of the respiratory muscles can be the most serious complication. Clinical manifestations in children are often anteceded within 2 to 4 weeks by recent illness or immunization.
