Polio (full name: poliomyelitis) is an infectious disease caused by the poliovirus. It is transmitted through contact with an infected person primarily through the fecal-oral route. The virus enters the body through the mouth or respiratory system and multiplies in the throat and intestines. The term acute flaccid myelitis was created in fall of to describe patients with sudden onset of acute flaccid limb weakness without a known cause and with lesions in gray matter of the spinal cord. There can be some white matter involvement. Most cases are in children. Viral causes include: non-polio enteroviruses (EV-D68, EV-A71).

In conclusion, our evidence shows that acute poliomyelitis can be favorably influenced by this treatment. This statement is based upon the following experience: First, 10 cases of respiratory paralysis have been treated, all of which recovered.
