Cute flaccid myelitis: Three new cases of rare polio-like illness emerge

11 October 2018, 02:01 | Silvia Roy

Orville was diagnosed with AFM and spent six days in the hospital.

The disorder is called acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM. "The CDC has been asking us to pay attention to this for quite a while". The Minnesota cases have been diagnosed since September 20, according to the Minnesota Department of Health, which says officials are working "aggressively" with health care providers to try to gather more information about the cases. "A person's arms and legs can become weak or paralyzed depending on the area of the spinal cord that is inflamed". It attacks the nervous system and can lead to arm or leg weakness and loss of muscle reflexes. The cause of any individual case of AFM can be hard to determine, and often, no cause is found. CDC specialists will make the final determination if these cases are AFM. Some people may be unable to urinate, and, in severe cases, a person can suffer respiratory failure and must be put on a ventilator.

AFM could be triggered by a variety of causes, including common cold viruses, poliovirus (for which children should be vaccinated), and West Nile virus (which is carried by mosquitoes and can be prevented by using insect repellant).
