Respiratory virus probed in muscle paralysis cases in 9 Colorado kids

download (1)Health officials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis in Colorado children and whether the culprit might be a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday sent doctors an alert about the polio-like cases and said the germ – enterovirus 68 – was detected in four out of eight of the sick children who had a certain medical test. The status of the ninth case is unclear. The virus can cause paralysis but other germs can, too. Health officials don’t know whether the virus caused any of the children’s arm and leg weaknesses or whether it’s just a germ they coincidentally picked up. READ MORE HERE

California health officials have documented 20 to 25 recent cases of paralysis in kids that they believe are linked to a polio-like virus—but not caused by polio itself. While that sounds pretty frightening, paralysis caused by infectious diseases is quite rare.

Some, but not all, of the children tested positive for enterovirus-68, a respiratory virus that, in rare cases, has been associated with polio-like limb paralysis and breathing problems. The California children were all vaccinated against polio, but not against enterovirus-68 which has no vaccine.
