Campylobacter jejuni infection is a leading bacterial cause of gastroenteritis and a common antecedent leading to Gullian-Barré syndrome. Our previous data suggested that the RNA-binding protein CsrA plays an important role in regulating several important phenotypes including motility, biofilm formation, and oxidative stress resistance. In this study, we compared the proteomes of wild type, csrA mutant, and complemented csrA mutant C. jejuni strains in an effort to elucidate the mechanisms by which CsrA affects virulence phenotypes...

Acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) is a life-threatening clinical entity characterized by weakness in the whole body muscles often accompanied by respiratory and bulbar paralysis. The most common cause is Gullian-Barre syndrome, but infections, spinal cord diseases, neuromuscular diseases such as myasthenia gravis, drugs and toxins, periodic hypokalemic paralysis, electrolyte disturbances, and botulism should be considered as in the differential diagnosis. Human coronaviruses (HCoVs) cause common cold, upper and lower respiratory tract disease, but in the literature presentation with the lower respiratory tract infection and AFP has not been reported previously...

A number of neurological entities have been associated with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Gullian-Barre syndrome (GBS) as a presenting feature of SLE remains uncommon with just 9 cases reported in the last half-century with the first case reported in 19641-9 (Table 1). We report a young female presenting with GBS in whom SLE and WHO class V lupus nephritis (LN) was subsequently diagnosed. The neurological symptoms partially responded to pulse methylprednisone, intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) and plasmapheresis...

BACKGROUND: The number of therapeutic procedures is increasing steadily year by year with growing collaboration of departments other than Hematology. In the aim to demonstrate our single center activity we analyzed our data since four years. METHODS: Between years 1998 and 2001, 658 therapeutic plasma exchange (TPE) procedures were performed on 158 patients. Median age and male/female ratio were 37 (range, 15-87) and 80/78, respectively. Main indications were myastenia gravis (n=55, 34%), TTP (n=13, 8...

At the age of 23 the patient showed the first signs of dryness syndrome. Those symptoms developed progressively and during a few years primary Sjögren syndrome was noted. In the 37th year of life suddenly the patient developed very severe Gullian-Barré syndrome with involvement of the peripheral and central nervous system and with a considerable autonomic component. After treatment the patient improved, however mild symptoms of central and peripheral nervous system destruction remained. Those symptoms are still present and the patient is under the care of the Neurology and Rheumatology Clinic...

Syndrome of multiple cranial palsies is a common clinical problem routinely encountered in neurological practice. Anatomical patterns of cranial nerves involvement help in localizing the lesion. Various infections, malignant neoplasms and autoimmune vasculitis are common disorders leading to various syndromes of multiple cranial nerve palsies. A large number of diffuse neurological disorders (e.g. Gullian-Barre syndrome, myopathies) may also present with syndrome of multiple cranial nerve palsies. Despite extensive biochemical and radiological work-up the accurate diagnosis may not be established...

Fifteen cases of Gullian-Barre syndrome (GBS) following specific infection are reported. The infections include varicella, 7 infective hepatitis, 4 measles, 2 and mumps, 2. There are no specific clinical or electrophysiological features which serve to distinguish GBS seen in association of these infections from those seen in other clinical settings. There is epidemiological evidence to suggest the association between GBS and hepatitis A, and non A non B hepatitis is more of a chance occurrence. Detailed epidemiological studies are needed to established a clear relationship between other specific viral infections and GBS...

Landry Gullian Barre Syndrome is rare in pregnancy. The case described occurred in a 30 year old woman at a gestational age of 33 weeks. This is probably the 30th case described in the Literature. Unlike in some previous reports remarkable improvement occurred with caesarean section.
