Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh confirmed on Tuesday evening that three children suspected of having acute flaccid myelitis are being treated. "Isolation protocols and infection control procedures are in place and we're working with the CDC and the Allegheny County Health Department to further monitor and evaluate the patient conditions".
Health officials are warning parents to be on the lookout for symptoms.
The Colorado Department of Health and Environment also reported an additional 14 cases of children with the disease, which affects the nervous system, specifically the spinal cord. The cause of any individual case of AFM can be hard to determine, and often, no cause is found. CDC specialists will make the final determination if these cases are AFM. Symptoms typically include sudden weakness in one or more arms or legs, along with loss of muscle tone and decreased or absent reflexes. Some people with AFM may be unable to urinate.
