Abstract : A number of infections are believed to trigger the commonest cause of acute paralysis worldwide, Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS). The anecdotal experience of doctors working in parts of South East and South Asia suggests that diarrhea associated GBS is infrequent; and GBS cases increase after rainy season when mosquitos breed. In this region the burden of flavivirus and other mosquito-borne arbovirus infections such as dengue, chikungunya and Japanese encephalitis is considerable.
