Infection with Campylobacter may provoke a paralyzing neurologic illness called Guillain-Barre syndrome in a small percentage of patients. Guil-lain-Barre syndrome occurs when a person's immune system attacks the body's own nerves, and it can lead to paralysis that lasts several weeks. It is estimated that approximately one in every 1,000 reported campylobacteriosis cases leads to Guillain-Barre syndrome. As many as 40 percent of Guillain-Barre syndrome cases in this country may be triggered by campylobacteriosis. Most people who get campylobacteriosis recover completely within two to five days, although recovery may take up to 10 days.
