      I was diagnosed with GBS and Adult ADEM in March of this year, on my way to full recovery, has anyone heard of acquiring both of these at once? I can’t seem to any info on having both and moving forward.
      Thanks

      Acute-disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is an inflammation in the brain and spinal cord that damages myelin. It is normally considered a central nervous system disorder. More about it here:

      Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis

      There are rare instances when GBS, a peripheral nervous system disorder, has been reported in combination with ADEM. This combined central and peripheral demyelination can be very debilitating. More detail here:

      Both diseases can be treated with IVIg, Plasma Exchange, and corticosteroids.
