The US authorities have stated that they ignore the direct causes of a rare and growing childhood illness in the country, acute sudden paralysis, close to poliomyelitis.
An acute shocking paralysis (AFP) is a rare but serious patient. The acute inflammation of the spine cells, which is characterized by spinal cells, is close to poliomyelitis (or polio), as it can cause paralysis that affects hands or feet. In the United States, the number of cases is growing rapidly. A situation that takes a great deal of parental care. On November 13, the American authorities also acknowledged that they ignored the cause of this pathology.
33 new things since last week
Most affected children aged 2 to 8 years. Three to ten days before the paralysis suffered, they all complained of fever and respiratory problems. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) studied 125 cases and half of them were positive for enteroviruses or rhinoviruses, causing fever, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea and pain. muscle But scientists still do not know the exact cause of the disease. "CDC is a science-based agency and now science does not provide an answer", explained Nancy Messonier, director of the organization, which was broadcast by AFP Le Figaro.
This year, 252 children were treated with AFP symptoms. Since the last week, 33 new cases have been reported. With 80 approved patients "We seem to be moving into an annual phase with the last two peak years (149 cases in 2016 and 120 cases in 2014)"she said. Syndrome started in 2014, but only about ten cases were registered in 2015 and 2017.
Some of AFP's children quickly recovered and many more remained paralyzed. Because the disease directly affects the nervous system. In 2017, one child died in America. Today it exists with a special treatment for this pathology. However, Nancy Messonier convinced that the disease was still rare. The scientist invites parents to "Seek immediate medical assistance for children with sudden and weak arms and legs".
