Coxsackie virus A24 infection presenting as acute flaccid paralysis



Coxsackie virus A24 infection presenting as acute flaccid paralysis



Lancet (North American Edition) 357(9256): 605, 24 February



Enteroviruses can cause outbreaks of acute flaccid paralysis (AFP), mimicking wild poliovirus infections. Coxsackie virus A24 has never been implicated and yet it is a virus with high outbreak potential. We describe the association of coxsackie virus A24 with AFP in East Timor.
