II. Epidemiology

  1. Most often in children <15 years old (esp. infants and young children)
  2. Summer and Fall (temperate climates) or year round (tropical climates)
  3. Incidence: Paralytic Polio (U.S.)
    1. 1950s: 15,000 cases per year

    3. 1970s: <10 cases per year
    4. 1979: No wild-type cases onset in U.S. since this time
    5. 1993: Last internationally imported case of polio in U.S.
  4. Incidence: Worldwide
    1. Polio is still a risk to travelers to developing countries
      1. Those travelers may reintroduce Polio on their return to the U.S.
    2. Polio cases still occur in developing countries throughout the world
      1. Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria

    2. Poor hygienic living conditions
    3. Under-immunized populations
  2. Travelers
    1. Unimmunized or under-immunized with Polio Vaccine
    2. Travel to remaining Polio endemic regions of the world (see above)
    3. Contact with persons traveling to Polio endemic regions of the world (see above)

IV. Pathophysiology

  1. Enterovirus infection (Picornaviridae)

        2. Respiratory Muscle dysfunction
        3. Bladder dysfunction
        4. Bulbar Paralysis (6-25% of cases)
  3. Other neurologic findings
    1. Deep Tendon Reflexes decreased or absent
    2. Sensation intact

VIII. Diagnosis: Probable Paralytic Polio Case

  1. Acute Flaccid Paralysis (one or more limbs) AND
  2. Decreased or absent Deep Tendon Reflexes (in affected limbs) AND
  3. No sensory loss AND
  4. No cognitive loss AND
  5. No other apparent cause

IX. Diagnosis

  1. Precautions
    1. Cerebrospinal fluid has poor Test Sensitivity for polio and does not exclude polio
  2. Poliovirus PCR, Viral Isolation, Intratypic Differentiation
    1. Obtain within 14 days of symptom onset (ideally)
    2. Sources: Obtain 2 of each source at least 24 hours apart
      1. Stool specimens
      2. Throat swabs

X. Management

  1. Supportive Care
  2. Isolate any patient suspected of polio to prevent transmission to others
  3. Immediately report any suspected case of polio to local health department
    1. Confirmed Polio cases require CDC report within 4 hours

XI. Complications: Acute

  1. Myocarditis
  2. Hypertension
  3. Pulmonary Edema

Definition (MSHFRE) Maladie infectieuse humaine aiguë, survenant plus particulièrement chez les enfants, due à un des trois sérotypes du virus polio humain. L'infection est dans la plupart des cas asymptomatique et limitée au nasopharynx et à l'appareil gastro-intestinal. Le système nerveux, principalement la moelle épinière, peut être infecté, entraînant une paralysie flasque progressive avec fasciculation et hyporéflexie. Les neurones moteurs sont principalement affectés. On peut également retrouver une encéphalite. La multiplication du virus dans le système nerveux entraîne une perte neuronale surtout au niveau du cordon médullaire. Une affection apparentée et rare, la poliomyélite à entérovirus non-poliovirus, a pu être décrite pour d'autres sérotypes d'entérovirus. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)
Definition (MSHCZE) Poliomyelitida - dětská obrna. Infekční onemocnění způsobené virem (poliovirus), který poškozuje oblasti páteřní míchy odpovědné za svalový pohyb (šedou hmotu míšní v předních rozích). Virus dříve v intervalech několika let vyvolával epidemie. Většina onemocnění proběhla skrytě nebo jen s „chřipkovými“ příznaky a zanechala odolnost (imunitu). U části dětí pronikl virus do nervového systému a způsobil těžké obrny s následnými deformitami. Mohlo dojít rovněž k postižení mozku nebo prodloužené míchy, které vyvolalo selhání základních životních funkcí - dech, krevní oběh. Od zavedení očkování (Sabinova vakcína) se toto dříve obávané onemocnění u nás nevyskytuje. (cit. Velký lékařský slovník online, 2013 http://lekarske.slovniky.cz/ )
Definition (NCI) An acute infectious disorder that affects the nervous system. It is caused by the poliovirus. The virus spreads by direct contact, and can be prevented by prophylaxis with the polio vaccine.
Definition (MSH) An acute infectious disease of humans, particularly children, caused by any of three serotypes of human poliovirus (POLIOVIRUS). Usually the infection is limited to the gastrointestinal tract and nasopharynx, and is often asymptomatic. The central nervous system, primarily the spinal cord, may be affected, leading to rapidly progressive paralysis, coarse FASCICULATION and hyporeflexia. Motor neurons are primarily affected. Encephalitis may also occur. The virus replicates in the nervous system, and may cause significant neuronal loss, most notably in the spinal cord. A rare related condition, nonpoliovirus poliomyelitis, may result from infections with nonpoliovirus enteroviruses. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp764-5)

Ontology: Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome (C0080040)

Definition (MSH) A syndrome characterized by new neuromuscular symptoms that occur at least 15 years after clinical stability has been attained in patients with a prior history of symptomatic poliomyelitis. Clinical features include new muscular weakness and atrophy of the limbs, bulbar innervated musculature, and muscles of respiration, combined with excessive fatigue, joint pain, and reduced stamina. The process is marked by slow progression and periods of stabilization. (From Ann NY Acad Sci 1995 May 25;753:68-80)

Definition (NCI_CDISC) Any viral organism that can be assigned to the species Poliovirus.
Definition (NCI) An enterovirus comprised of an single-stranded positive sense RNA genome and a protein capsid. This virus is the human pathogen that causes poliomyelitis.
Definition (MSH) A species of ENTEROVIRUS which is the causal agent of POLIOMYELITIS in humans. Three serotypes (strains) exist. Transmission is by the fecal-oral route, pharyngeal secretions, or mechanical vector (flies). Vaccines with both inactivated and live attenuated virus have proven effective in immunizing against the infection.
Definition (CSP) a common infection of the gastrointestinal tract which is usually silent; when the CNS is infected there is damage to the anterior horn cells and motor paralysis; causes similar disease in chimpanzees and monkeys when injected.
