Guillain-Barre syndrome in a pediatric patient following infection due to Leptospira.Jpn J Infect Dis. 2003 Feb; 56(1):29-31.JJ
Leptospirosis is a disease with protean manifestations. We report a case of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) in a pediatric patient following infection with Leptospira. Infecting Leptospira presumably belonged to serovar Copenhageni. The patient recovered completely. The possibility of GBS developing as a result of antecedent leptospiral infection should be kept in mind.
