La Viceministra de Salud Pública del Minsa, María del Carmen Calle, precisó que desde el primer momento su Sector tomó las acciones necesarias para atender oportunamente a los pacientes que presentan síntomas relacionados con síndrome de Guillain Barré, así como para dar inicio a las investigaciones científicas que logren establecer un diagnóstico certero de los casos presentados en las últimas semanas.

Por su parte, el representante de la Geresa de La Libertad, Eduardo Araujo, comunicó que de los 22 casos posibles de síndrome de Guillain-Barré que se registraron hasta el miércoles en esta región, 19 fueron confirmados clínicamente.

Expresó que les llama poderosamente la atención es contar con 15 en menos de dos semanas.

Aún cuando se desconocen las causas que lo originan, el Centro Nacional de Epidemiología, Prevención y Control de Enfermedades (CDC) cree que podría estar relacionado al enterovirus, que ingresa por el sistema digestivo y ataca el intestino.

Indicó que este entero virus circula en todas partes del mundo e incluso se ha detectado brotes como en el caso de Trujillo.

No existe cura para el síndrome del Guillain-Barré.

De la misma manera Luis Suárez, director del Centro Nacional de Epidemiología, Prevención y Control de Enfermedades, recordó las medidas de higiene en los hogares. No obstante pidió a la comunidad que refuerce el lavado de manos para prevenir.

"Habrá mayor vigilancia y bioseguridad en los establecimientos de salud para evitar mayor contagios".

El síndrome de Guillain-Barré es una afección caracterizada por una debilidad muscular progresiva de abajo hacia arriba del cuerpo. "Su tratamiento consiste en el recambio plasmático total (plasmaféresis) y se debe realizar como máximo hasta 28 días después de ser diagnosticada o de lo contrario no funcionará", comentó Miguel Ángel Villavicencio Tío, neurólogo del hospital Dos de Mayo.

Los primeros síntomas son la debilidad y adormecimiento de las piernas.

Si la inflamación afecta los nervios del tórax y del diafragma (el gran músculo bajo los pulmones que le ayuda a respirar) y esos músculos están débiles, se puede requerir asistencia respiratoria.
