Unusual features of the Guillain-Barré syndrome after rabies vaccine prepared in suckling mouse brain

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Five patients with acute polyneuritis following treatment with rabies vaccine prepared in suckling mouse brains are reported. These patients had severe and protracted disease. The extensive cranial nerve involvement, high mortality rate, and disabling longterm sequelae were in contrast to cases of the Guillain-Barré syndrome not associated with the vaccine.
