Abstract

Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an auto-immune disease of peripheral nerve system. It occurs mainly after preceding infection such as upper respiratory or gastrointestinal infection and other antecedent events as tetanus vaccinations. However, any case of GBS after tetanus infection has not been reported. Recently, when analyzed the clinical aspects of 13 tetanus patients including ours, 2 GBS occurred after tetanus infection. We report the neurological and electrophysiologic findings of two cases of Guillain-Barre Syndrome after generalized tetanus.
