The tests demonstrated weakened neurological reflexes as well as weakened and delayed muscle reflexes... However, the medical knowledge of that time did not allow the interpretation that such symptoms resulted from peripheral nerve demyelination... The researchers also examined the cerebrospinal fluid and found elevated protein levels but normal cellular composition, which helped them to exclude meningitis... The doctors believed that the cases they described were different from the cases described earlier by Octave Landry (1826–1865)... Landry’s cases showed a significant heterogeneity, their course was much more serious, the outcome was poor, and in several cases, patients died... The name “Guillain–Barré syndrome” was first used during a 1927 neurology congress... The congress presentation was preceded by a speech by Barré, in which he omitted Strohl’s name... Similarly, Strohl was not mentioned as a co-author of the first publication from 1916, which lends support to the claim that Barré’s omission was a deliberate one... In this way, the name “Guillain–Barré syndrome” gained ground... However, if the name of the syndrome was to recognize objectively merits of all the researchers who contributed to its description, the condition should be named Guillain–Barré–Strohl–Landry syndrome... He described a symptom typical of meningitis, a symptom present in syphilis of the central nervous system (Guillain–Thaone syndrome), and described an anatomical structure in the cerebellum (Guillain–Mollaret triangle), as well as one of choreiform symptoms (Guillain–Bertrand–Lereboullet syndrome)... He also discovered a symptom associated with tumours of the nasopharynx and the base of the skull (Guillain–Alajouanine–Garcin syndrome)... The couple had five daughters... Georges Guillain died in Paris on 29 June 1961.
