Abstract

The electrodiagnostic findings in Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) play important roles in both understanding its pathophysiology and its diagnosis. Only demyelinating neuropathies were thought to be present when GBS patients were first diagnosed in Western countries, but the concept changed when many axonal GBS patients were reported in Asia. Reversible conduction failure was subsequently revealed, and it was recognized as a pathophysiologic continuum of axonal GBS. Thus, the electrodiagnostic findings in GBS have had a profound effect on the history of this disease.
