Reply To: Ivig vs. PE

I should have written “better recovery than without treatment.” Both IvIg and PE can improve recovery and recovery is generally better with earlier treatment. Nothing is guaranteed, however. Every case is individual.

An excellent book on the subject is Guillain-Barré Syndrome from diagnosis to recovery by Parry and Steinberg. This is the essential handbook for anyone with GBS or CIDP.
