TONELLI, Deoclécio et al. Anesthesia in Guillain-Barré pediatric patient after measles vaccination: case report. Rev. Bras. Anestesiol. [online]. 2005, vol.55, n.6, pp.665-668. ISSN 0034-7094.

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Guillain-Barré syndrome following measles vaccination is uncommon. Diagnosis is often delayed, leading to increased morbidity. This report describes an advanced Guillain-Barré case and the special approaches required during anesthesia. CASE REPORT: Male patient, four years old, with Guillain-Barré syndrome diagnosed at 1 year of age, submitted to gastrostomy under uneventful general anesthesia with sevoflurane, without neuromuscular blockers. CONCLUSIONS: The case highlights the low frequency with which this syndrome so important for anesthetic practice is diagnosed, post-vaccination adverse events, the best choice for the anesthetic team and complications of pediatric Guillain-Barré syndrome.

Keywords : ANESTHESIA, General [inhalational]; DISEASE [Guillain-Barré syndrome].
