Enterovirus May Have Caused Partial Paralysis in Children


According to a new study by researchers at the University of California, there may be a link between a strain of Enterovirus D68, or EV-D68, and polio-like partial paralysis in children.

Since last summer, over hundred children across the country have developed paralysis in an arm or a leg. Researchers say 64 percent of the patients tested positive for the rare respiratory virus.

"These findings strengthen the putative association between enterovirus D68 and acute flaccid myelitis and the contention that acute flaccid myelitis is a rare yet severe clinical manifestation of enterovirus D68 infection in susceptible hosts," the researchers say.
