AFM: Acute Flaccid Myelitis
« on: January 21, 2019, 11:58:42 AM »
       Acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) is a rare but serious condition.   It affects the nervous system, specifically the area of the spinal cord called gray matter, which causes the muscles and reflexes in the body to become weak.   CDC has been thoroughly investigating the AFM cases that have occurred since 2014, when we first noted a large number of cases being reported.
