Just a few days ago we reported an outbreak of polio, which had been eradicated in the United States years ago.

For the past three weeks, toddler Julia Payne has been treated at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago where she was recently diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis, a rare but serious condition that causes inflammation in the spinal cord area that directly affects a person’s muscles.

Across the state, there have been nine recent cases of people younger than 18 years old who have been clinically diagnosed with acute flaccid myelitis. Last month, the Illinois Department of Public Health sent an alert to health care providers about AFM.
