Hallo

I am not sure whether you are referring to Gilliane syndrome or to Guillain Barre Syndrome. I am struggling to find information on Gilliane syndrome and all i could find out for you is that it is a rare bacterial disease. Guillain Barre Syndrome is a disorder in which the immune system attacks part of the nervous system. This causes weekness and tingling sensations in the legs and can spread to the upper body and arms. It is considered a rare disease but can affect people of any age and gender. The cause for this is not known.

Please let me know if you need any further information and on which specific disease and i will gladly respond or try to find out more.

Kind regards
Izabelle Pieterse
