Guillian Barre syndrome was 95 % more prone in autoimmune disorders, with GBS with autonomic neuropathy 13 %, GBS with Hepatopathy 10%, and GBS+AIDP, CIDP, and Diabetic neuropathy 1 in each. Subjects with traumatic brain injury had their GCS scores properly assessed, and thus 25 % had GCS 3-8, 42 % had GCS 9-12, and 33 % had GCS 13-15. Conclusion: The prevalence and incidence of neurological disease and disorders were studied first at demographics of the patients; it was observed that males are more prone to neurological ailments, while their age range is between 13 and 85 years.
