  Polio, or poliomyelitis, is an infectious viral disease that can strike at any age and affects a person's nervous system. Between the late s and early s, polio crippled aro people each year in the United States alone, making it one of . Polio also called as Poliomyelitis. It is a viral disease that destroys the nerve cells present in the spinal cord, causing paralysis or muscle weakness to some parts of the body. It is a contagious disease affecting the nervous system and is caused by Picornaviridae – a poliovirus.

Polio virus is able to reside in the throat or intestinal tract of humans. Poliomyelitis is a highly contagious infectious disease which has three strains, poliovirus 1 (PV1), PV2 and PV3. Polio virus, although rare in developed countries, can be found in many under-developed countries due to the uncommonness of vaccinations there.   Poliomyelitis (a.k.a: Polio or Infantile Paralysis) is a contagious viral infection that attacks the nervous most commonly affects the children below five years of age. Poliovirus gets transmitted by contaminated food and water, through the fecal-oral route.

Springfield, Ill., Thomas [] (OCoLC) Poliomyelitis is a viral infection caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus and is most often recognized by the acute onset of flaccid paralysis.

It affects primarily children under the age of 5 years. Transmission is primarily person-to-person spread, principally through the fecal-oral route.

Post-polio syndrome (PPS) embodies the new neuromuscular symptoms that patients with prior paralytic poliomyelitis develop after a stable course from 20 to 40 years. These include new muscle weakness, fatigue, muscular atrophy, muscle pain and various secondary muscular complaints.

Fundamental questions regarding the neurobiology of the motor neurones previously affected by the poliovirus, the. A breakthrough in the comprehension of poliomyelitis, viz., clinical disease and pathology, was possible by progress achieved in neuropathology and neuropathologic techniques.

On the basis of the autopsy of two cases of poliomyelitis acuta, review of the literature, and the unknown etiologic agent, they caution against jumping to conclusions about the causal sequence of events.

Poliomyelitis is an acute infection caused by a poliovirus (an enterovirus). Manifestations include a nonspecific minor illness (abortive poliomyelitis), sometimes aseptic meningitis without paralysis (nonparalytic poliomyelitis), and, less often, flaccid weakness of various muscle groups (paralytic poliomyelitis).

Poliomyelitis 1. PoliomyelitisOften called polio or infantile paralysis, is aninfectious disease caused by a virus. This virus is a member of the enterovirussubgroup of the Picornaviridae familyand has three serotypes: PV1, PV2 and PV3.
