Consensus on causal link between Zika and neurological disorders

Scientific consensus has been reached on Zika virus being a cause of microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome, based on a growing body of preliminary research. 

While intense efforts continue to reinforce and refine this link within a rigorous research framework, recent case report studies as well as a small number of case control and cohort studies, support the conclusion that there exists an association between Zika and microcephaly and Guillain-Barré syndrome.
