CDC Investigates Cases Of Rare Neurological 'Mystery Illness' In Kids

18 Octobre, 2018, 01:56 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

The cause of most of the AFM incidents is unknown, according to the CDC, as are the long-term effects.

The agency says there are several possible causes, including "viruses, environmental toxins, and genetic disorders".

The scariest and most severe symptom is when the disease affects the diaphragm, the muscle that helps us breathe.

An analysis found the average age of the patients in confirmed cases over the past five years is 4 years old, and 90 percent occur in children 18 and younger. "Most AFM cases occur in the late summer and fall", which she referred to as "seasonal clustering". This condition is not new, but the increase in cases we saw starting in 2014 is new ...

States are reporting their cases to the CDC, Messonnier said.

"This is actually a pretty dramatic disease", Messonnier told reporters on Tuesday.

In an email Tuesday, Maryland Department of Health spokeswoman Brittany Fowler said the CDC will "make a determination about the status of the cases" in Maryland "based on clinical and laboratory information". "Most of the people who get sick have had a viral disease and then it comes after that generally but there's a great deal of research that needs to be done on this".

After testing patients' stool specimens, the CDC determined poliovirus is not the cause of the AFM cases. The CDC estimates it affects only 1 out of 1 million people in the United States.

The number is almost double the amount observed in 2017, when 33 AFM cases were found in the US.

A general view of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia September 30, 2014. To date, no pathogen has been consistently detected in AFM patients.

The CDC is actively investigating and monitoring disease activity and recommends taking standard prevention measures such as hand-washing, protecting oneself from mosquito bites and staying up-to-date on vaccinations. "So we're very lucky that he had (physical therapy) through early intervention".

CNN has reported that this year, more than half of all USA states have had confirmed or possible cases, including North and SC. It could be potentially deadly if the diaphragm is paralyzed because the child would be unable to breathe.

The disease made headlines recently when news broke of cases in Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Iowa and other states.

On Monday, CNN reached out to health departments in every state and received responses from 48 states plus the District of Columbia.
