The Minnesota Department of Health has issued an advisory to doctors after six children were diagnosed with a rare disorder that affects the spinal cord.
A child is being examined at Oishei Children's Hospital for what their parent suspects is a case of acute flaccid myelitis (AFM), a condition affecting the nervous system that causes the body's muscles and reflexes to become weak. "CDC specialists will make the final determination if these cases are AFM". It is actively investigating AFM cases, and trying to unearth more information about the rare condition.
"Particularly after you go to the bathroom and before you are eating or touching your face", Dr. Robinette says. Other symptoms are neck weakness or stiffness, drooping eyelids, difficulty swallowing or slurred speech.
"We don't yet have any effective treatment for the virus or for the condition", Messacar said.
"What we do know is that AFM can be caused by lots of different things, and one of those things is a viral infection", Dr. Meade said. By the end of that year, 120 people had been diagnosed in 34 states.

Orville spent six days in the hospital being treated with steroids and undergoing physical therapy, she said. Four of the five had a fever of 100.4 or higher.

Some affected by AFM may also be unable to pass urine, and have difficulty breathing, requiring urgent ventricular support.
He emphasized that early work-up is helpful for finding the underlying cause of the AFM cases and added that most children eventually recover from the damage from the spinal cord inflammation.
Currently, little is known about how AMF develops and there are no specific treatments.
