The Landry-Guillain-Barré syndrome is considered rare in connection with pregnancy. In mild cases the course of the pregnancy is unaffected. In severe cases, with respiratory depression and bulbar symptoms, especially during late pregnancy, the syndrome entails an increased risk to both mother and foetus. Therapeutic abortion of cesarean section are not considered to be indicated. A pregnant woman developed the disease during the final trimester and gave birth to premature twins during respirator treatment. The mother and the infants survived.
