Montgomery’s prognosis is hard to pinpoint

Toledo Blade
Ohio Auditor Betty Montgomery, who has developed a rare neurological disorder called Guillain-Barre syndrome, says she will remain in the race for state attorney general. Dr. Robert Lisak, chairman of the Neurology Department at the Wayne State University School of Medicine, said it is thought that the affliction is triggered by infections, sometimes from a cold. He said the severity varies with each person and about 80 percent of those who are afflicted recover with no problems or with only minor complications.
