Shannon Barbare, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, told Fox News Tuesday there have been 14 confirmed cases of AFM in the state so far this year - though it's unclear if all of those cases were included in the CDC's latest report. In Minnesota alone, six children have been diagnosed since mid-September. "Cases have been reported from the Twin Cities, central Minnesota and northeastern Minnesota", the state health department said in a statement. However, the 2014 cases coincided with a national outbreak of a respiratory illness caused by a virus called enterovirus D68.
The most severe symptom of AFM is respiratory failure that can happen when the muscles involved with breathing become weak.
Diagnosis includes a brain and spine MRI and a spinal tap to test fluid. You can also protect yourself from mosquito-borne viruses such as West Nile virus-another known cause of AFM. Minnesota saw three AFM cases that year. And, unlike the viral disease polio, AFM's more elusive cause means there is no vaccine. There are no specific treatments for AFM, so doctors may decide on certain treatments on a case-by-case basis.
