          Abstract

          Se presentan tres casos con Síndrome de Guillain Barre, admitidos en la unidad de cuidados intensivos del Hospital Provincial Manuel Ascunce Domenech desde julio a septiembre de 2003. La infección respiratoria y gastrointestinal de causa viral precedió el cuadro en dos casos. Posterior a la debilidad muscular y parálisis progresiva de extremidades, apareció marcada dificultad respiratoria con necesidad de ventilación mecánica artificial en dos pacientes. La plasmaféresis permitió una recuperación rápida de la severidad de los síntomas. A partir de la quinta plasmaféresis se logró una ventilación espontánea, y antes de ella, una mejoría motora. Los pacientes se recuperaron completamente dos meses después de la rehabilitación y la fisioterapia, y fueron seguidos durante seis meses sin recaídas.
