Klobuchar Calls for CDC Investigation of Polio-Like Illness
13 October, 2018, 14:45
It is actively investigating AFM cases, and trying to unearth more information about the rare condition.
Katie Payne, the child's mother, said her faith is what's keeping them going, and said she's sharing this story to help spread the word about the illness. Three other cases were reported in Pierce, Lewis, and Snohomish counties. This year, there was one case of AFM before the current batch of five affected children.
In a similar case of AFM, Camden Stravers, a three-and-a-half-year-old from Iowa, who was healthy just three months ago, can no longer support his head and suffers from partial paralysis in his arm, 6ABC reported. AFM can cause a range of types and severity of symptoms, but the commonality among them is a loss of strength or movement in one or more arms or legs.
The two children are among nine recent cases of AFM - all involving minors - reported across the state, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health. Environmental toxins and genetic disorders are also potentially involved in the development of the disease.
AFM is a polio-like illness that affects a person's nervous system, including the spinal cord.
Most affected by AFM will experience a sudden onset of weakness or paralysis in a limb, but some may also experience drooping face and eye muscles, difficulty swallowing or difficulty moving the eyes, according to the CDC.
"It's something we need to be aware of", Dr. Hallberg said. "So we've seen that there's an association between viruses, specifically enterovirus, in the past". Some people with AFM may be unable to urinate. It is believed that AFM can be contagious, and for this reason, isolation protocols are in place for patients who are confirmed to have the neurological illness.
There have been 38 confirmed cases in 16 states so far. There isn't a vaccine that could prevent AFM and there isn't a vaccine that causes the condition, medical experts said.
Doctors are encouraging people to practice what are called "general prevention strategies" - including washing your hands with soap and water, getting vaccinated and preventing mosquito bites.
There was a cluster of nine cases of AFM in Washington state back in 2016 and three cases past year.
