“Guillain-Barré is diagnosed based on your child’s symptoms and the results of some specific tests. A pediatrician or pediatric neurologist will examine your child, review his or her medical history, and ask about specific symptoms.   Your child will probably need to be admitted to the hospital so doctors can watch for complications and help him or her recover.  Guillain-Barré syndrome is very treatable, and most of children recover fully or with only mild long-term weakness. Most children can go home from the hospital within a week.”  Know this disease can strike at any age.”
