Study shows Zika can cause guillain-barre syndrome
from USA Today
For the first time, researchers have shown that the Zika virus can cause Guillain-Barre syndrome, a rare condition in which the immune system attacks nerve cells and causes paralysis. Five Latin American countries with Zika epidemics — Brazil, El Salvador, Venezuela, Colombia and Suriname — have reported increases in Guillain-Barre syndrome. Until now, however, clinicians didn't have scientific evidence showing the virus actually triggers the condition.
