Guillain-Barré-Strohl syndrome

Also known as:
Landry’s paralysis
Kussmaul-Landry syndrome
Landry's syndrome
Landry-Guillain-Barré syndrome
Landry-Kussmaul syndrome
Glanzmann-Saland syndrome (misnomer)

Acute ascending polyradiculoneuritis, acute polyneuritis, acute febrile polyneuritis, acute idiopathic polyneuritis, acute infectious polyneuritis, acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy, acute plexitis, acute polyneuritis with facial diplegia, acute polyneuronitis, acute polyneuropathy, acute polyradiculitis, ascending paralysis, acute postinfectious polyneuropathy, celluloradiculoneuritis, encephalomyeloradiculoneuritis, febrile polyneuritis, idiopathic polyradiculoneuritis, infectious neuronitis, infectious polyneuritis, infectious polyneuronitis, inflammatory polyneuropathy, myeloradiculitis, neuritis with albuminocytologic dissociation, neuromyelitis hyperalbumenotica, neuronitis, paralysis spinalis ascendens acuta, polyneuritis with facial diplegia, polyradiculitis, polyradiculoneuritis, polyradiculonévrite inflammatoire (aiguê), postinfectious radiculoneuropathy, radiculoneuritis, schwannosis. All are believed to be the same syndrome. This disturbance has been described by various eponymic terms, which are now all believed to be the same disease. The term Glanzmann-Saland syndrome (severe polyneuritis following diphteriae) has also been used, but that is a misnomer

"Today, various other forms of the the word "polio" are still used to describe the effects of poisoning, though usually with regard to paralysis in animals. A search of Medline ("polio" and "poison") finds about 45 contemporary articles where poisoning causality is attributed to polio. The terminology found was: "polioencephalomalacia", "poliomyelomalacia", "polyradiculoneuritis", "neurological picture similar to that of poliomyelitis", "polioencephalomyelomalacia", "lumbal poliomyelomalacia", "cerebrocortical necrosis (polioencephalomalacia)", "Lead poisoning in grey-headed fruit bats (Pteropus poliocephalus)", "multifocal-poliomyelomalacia", "spinal poliomalacia", "Polio and high-sulfate diets", "Atypical porcine enterovirus encephalomyelitis: possible interraction between enteroviruses and arsenicals", "Polioencephalomalacia and photosensitization associated with Kochia scoparia consumption in range cattle", "bovine polioencephalomalacia". ---Jim West, Health and Research Publications,
