Abortive poliomyelitis

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Abortive poliomyelitis is a mild form of poliomyelitis that does not involve the central nervous system, does not cause permanent disabilities of any kind, and recovery is within a couple days (24-72 hours).[1]

Signs and symptoms[edit | edit source]

Symptoms are similar to the flu: fever, malaise, headache, sore throat and vomiting. There are no permanent disabilities of any kind. Abortive poliomyelitis accounts for 80-90% of poliovirus cases.[1]
