Guillain-Barre syndrome: a rare complication of leptospirosis and scrub typhus co-infection.
Trop Doct. 2019 Jul; 49(3):248-249.TD

Abstract

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a potentially life-threatening immune-mediated acute inflammatory polyneuropathy associated with several antecedent infections. We report a 20-year-old man with GBS associated with concurrent leptospirosis and scrub typhus infection. GBS was confirmed with clinical examination and nerve conduction studies. There have been case reports of GBS in association with Leptospira and Orienta tsusugamushi separately. However, this may be the first case report of GBS associated with concurrent diseases.
