    Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute polyradiculoneuropathy with a variable clinical presentation and is the most common cause of acute palsy in children. The classic presentation is an acute monophasic, nonfebrile, postinfectious illness manifesting as an ascending flaccid palsy with areflexia. Aim. Analysis of children with GBS in 6 years observation. In the present study we describe a population of 21 children (19 boys and 2 girls) with GBS hospitalized in the years 2009-2014 in our department. In this group 20 children (95%) had flaccid palsy of limbs, 13 children (62%) had previous respiratory or digestive infections. 17 (81%) children were treated by plasmapheresis, 3 (14%) by intravenous immunoglobulin with good outcome. For 6 years mechanical ventilation was not used in children with GBS.
