Poliomyelitis, infection– Poliomyelitis is an enteroviral infection that can manifest in 4 different forms:

  • Nonparalytic poliomyelitis develops, symptoms, usually are those observed in abortive disease in addition to meningeal irritation.
  • Paralytic poliomyelitis involves systemic manifestation, such as respiratory failure, in addition to symptoms observed in nonparalytic poliomyelitis.
  • Patients who have recovered from poliomyelitis occasionally develop a post poliomyelitis syndrome, in which recurrences of weakness or fatigue are observed and which usually involve groups of muscles that were initially affected. This post polio syndrome may develop 20-40 years after infection with poliovirus.- GELS, LATH
