Intramuscular injection as a provoking factor for paralysis in acute poliomyelitis. A case control study

, : Intramuscular injection as a provoking factor for paralysis in acute poliomyelitis. A case control study. Indian Pediatrics 30(3): 335-340

Provocative injections cause paralysis 7-20+ days after, with changes in pattern and severity. In this study children who developed poliomyelitis had up to 3 times the chance of having received intramuscular injections than matched children with acute respiratory infections or fever. However, only 35% of the 172 children with paralysis fitted this time scale and correlation of paralysis with injection was slight.
