A Case Report of Three Guillain-Barré Syndrome During SARS-CoV-2 Pandemic: Promising Outcome in a Patient with History of Multiple Sclerosis
Neurologic complications in patients with coronavirus disease 19 (COVID-19) are common particularly in hospitalized patients. Guillain–Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare complication of COVID-19. Most patients with GBS and COVID-19 presented with progressive, ascending limb weakness evolving over one to four days. There are some reported cases of GBS, mostly in form of case reports or case series, and also a comprehensive review on this topic. However, none of these cases experienced multiple sclerosis (MS) as an underlying disease. So, in this manuscript we reported three cases of COVID-19 induced GBS; one of them with history of MS and promising outcome after receiving five sessions of plasmapheresis and corticosteroid therapy.
