After confirming another case of the rare, polio-like disease, the CDC now faces at least 28 more likely cases across the United States.
A rare illness that can lead to paralysis or death, acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), is making headlines across the nation, with one of the newest cases confirmed last week by a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida. Nationwide, 62 cases of the disease have been confirmed this year.
Many confirmed cases have been children, with the average age 4 years old.
As of now, Dr. Carlson said AFM appears to affect children and he's not seen a case with teenagers. The disease seems to attack the child's nervous system, specifically the spinal cord. Most of the cases involve children, and while the CDC says it doesn't know the cause of a lot of them, it is urging parents to practice disease-prevention steps, such as ensuring their children are up to date on vaccines, washing their hands, and protected from mosquito bites. AFM causes weakness in the arms or legs and generally occurs in children.
The CDC has not confirmed the ten cases in IL are actually AFM yet, but IDPH expects confirmation in the next couple weeks.
