  • Illinois investigating 9 ‘sporadic’ cases of polio-like illness in children | Belleville News-Democrat

Between August 2014 and August 2018, the CDC received information on a total of 362 confirmed cases of AFM nationwide.

There is no specific treatment for AFM, but a neurologist may recommend certain interventions on a case-by-case basis. A 2-year-old from Batavia spent several weeks at the hospital and is now in a rehab facility. Among them is two-year-old Julia Payne, whose symptoms started off resembling those of a common cold. Experts don't know what causes it.

"It's very hard to understand what kids are going to react this way and which aren't", Malakooti said earlier this week.

A rare disease similar to polio appears to be spiking.

An Illinois Department of Public Health statement said they are working with doctors to collect information on the nine cases reported. According to the CDC, the largest number of cases, about 50, were reported in September 2014 before dropping to single digits in following months.

Symptoms include facial droop/weakness, difficulty moving the eyes, drooping eyelids, or difficulty with swallowing or slurred speech.
