Guillain-Barr, syndrome (GBS) is one of the reasons of acute polyneuropathy causing severe morbidity and mortality. Forty-six patients with GBS were included in our study. Clinical, laboratory, electrophysiological and prognostic features of the patients were evaluated retrospectively. Patients were divided into two groups. Group A consisted of children who attained a full recovery within 2 months from onset of the disease; group B consisted of children who experienced complete or partial recovery beyond 2 months from onset of the disease. Acute inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy was found in 56.5% of patients and axonal form in 43.5% patients. Antecedent events were found in 28 (60.9%) patients. Five patients (10.8%) needed mechanical ventilation and one patient (2.1%) died. Poor outcome was related with clinic stage and electrophysiological subtypes (axonal form). In our study, poor prognostic factors were related with clinic stage and electrophysiological subtypes (axonal form).
