Brief Summary:
Guillain-barre syndrome (GBS) is an acute immune-mediated polyneuropathy. Intravenous Gamma globulin is an effective therapy.Although high doses of gamma globulin are clinically effective, the patient's recovery and clinical prognosis vary. The establishment of a cohort study on the therapeutic effect of gamma globulin in Guillain-barre Syndrome is beneficial to the diagnosis of the disease and to the understanding of the natural course of the disease and the efficacy of drug treatment.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. GBS disability score [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    GBS disability scale ( Guillain-Barré syndrome disability scale) was defined as follows: 0: healthy state; 1: minor symptoms and capable of running; 2: able to walk 5 meters or more without assistance but unable to run; 3: able to walk 5 meters across an open space with help; 4: bedridden or chair-bound; 5: requiring assisted ventilation for at least part of the day; 6: dead

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Respiratory function [ Time Frame: 6 months ]
    whether mechanical ventilation is required
