The purpose of this study was to bibliometrically analyze scientific publications on Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) related to COVID-19. A specialized search of the Scopus was used (December 2019 to February 2022). Collected publications were evaluated in Scival (Elsevier). The results were arranged in tables for presentation. We found 959 papers that were collected and the highest percentage of these belonged to the area of Neurology. Josef Finsterer was the author with the highest academic production, but Benedict Michael was the one with the highest impact worldwide. Although the Universidade Federal de São Paulo (Brazil) was the college with the highest scientific production, it was King's College London that reported the highest impact. Regarding the journals, the Journal of Neurology is the one with the highest worldwide production. In addition, an increase in first quartile publication and articles with national collaboration was reported. Scholarly output on COVID-19 and GBS have been increasing. Although national collaboration has the highest proportion of manuscripts, it is the international type that reported a greater impact, this would show a great interest on the part of researchers from all over the world regarding this topic.
