The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed one of the cases as AFM, Norton officials said.
However, as of October this year has already recorded 127 cases in 22 States.
The symptoms are very similar to polio, or poliomyelitis, an infectious disease caused by a virus. "There are a few viruses that can do this", she said.
"The symptoms most often are weakness of an extremity starting in one and sometimes spreading to other extremities", she said. Pardo-Villamizar said identifying vulnerable populations is 'a work in progress.' Mary Anne Jackson, a pediatric infectious disease specialist and interim dean of the school of medicine at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, said numerous patients she saw were healthy children before falling ill with the disease. The agency said it is very concerned about it. Samples from some patients revealed the presence of enteroviruses, but others had been infected with a rhinovirus.
Its hallmark symptom is the rapid onset of weakness in arms or legs.
The peculiar illness causes weakness in the limbs, loss of muscle tone, and may also result in neck pain, headache, difficulty swallowing or breathing, and in the worst of cases, respiratory failure.
The increase in cases has been happening since 2014, usually in August and September, but only in 2014 and 2016, Messonnier said in a news briefing with reporters. "But certainly if someone has been sick and starts to notice their child isn't walking or moving correctly, you should get that checked out as soon as possible". The study was published in the journal Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology. The symptoms tend to occur about a week after they had a fever and respiratory illness.
"We work with what we have", says Priya Duggal, PhD, director of the genetic epidemiology program at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore. "Several of the kids did recover, but the majority of them still had permanent deficits a year out".
Because officials don't know the cause of AFM, they can't recommend a specific way to prevent it. Officials will be conducting additional analysis on this year's cases.

"This disorder presents just like paralytic polio used to present back in the 1940s", says Patterson, who's also a Mayo Clinic professor of neurology, pediatrics, and medical genetics. It's only a small handful of children who progress to the muscle weakness associated with AFM.
