GONZALEZ M, Guillermo; GALVAN M, Angel; ZABALETA O, Mario Alberto  and  VARGAS P, Nicolas. Guillain Barre Syndrome caused by dengue virus: regarding 2 cases. Acta Neurol Colomb. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.1, pp.54-59. ISSN 0120-8748.

Infection with dengue virus has increased its importance due to the growth of population and has positioned itself as the most important arbovirus worldwide. Two cases of Guillain Barre syndrome are described, which occurred in the department of Huila in the second half of 2013 and which was detected as a causal agent of acute dengue virus infection by indirect evidence (Dengue IgM). The first case had a typical presentation and the second an atypical presentation; we found that neurological manifestations produced by this virus are still poorly understood, and in endemic regions it should be suspected and actively sought as an etiology of various neurological syndromes.

Keywords : Guillain Barre Syndrome; Dengue; Serology; Diagnosis; Cerebrospinal Fluid.
