  • Description:
    Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) is a rare condition that affects a person’s immune system by damaging the nerves, causing muscle weakness or paralysis. Recently, countries affected by Zika virus have reported an increase in cases of GBS. The Puerto Rico Department of Health is preparing for a possible increase of patients with GBS as transmission of Zika virus increases. GBS surveillance will help to detect increases of GBS cases and guide public health officials to take quick public health action.
