<&59;p>&59;Desde el año 2015 el mundo se vio enfrentado al renacer de una nueva epidemia por el virus del Zika (vZIKA), cuyas complicaciones neurológicas hicieron que en Febrero de 2016 la Organización Mundial de la Salud declarara la epidemia como una “emergencia de salud pública de importancia internacional”. En el presente artículo se revisan las características de este virus y su asociación con el síndrome de Guillain-Barré, a través de una posible respuesta autoinmune contra gangliósidos mediante mimetismo molecular, en el contexto de la ecología autoinmune.<&59;/p>&59;<&59;p>&59; <&59;/p>&59;<&59;p>&59;<&59;strong>&59;NEUROLOGICAL AUTOIMMUNITY IN THE TIME OF ZIKA<&59;/strong>&59;<&59;/p>&59;<&59;p>&59;<&59;strong>&59;ABSTRACT<&59;/strong>&59;<&59;/p>&59;<&59;p>&59;Since 2015 the world is facing a new outbreak of Zika virus (ZIKV). The sudden increase in neurological complications associated with ZIKV prompted the World Health Organization to declare this outbreak in February 2016 a “public health emergency of international concern”. This article reviews the main characteristics of ZIKV and its association with Guillain-Barre syndrome, in the context of autoimmune ecology, through a possible molecular mimicry against gangliosides.<&59;/p>&59;<&59;p>&59; <&59;/p>&59;
