Abstract

An oral-facial dyskinesia, symmetrical acute quadriplegia, and mild cerebral spinal fluid pleocytosis with fever are described in a 20-month-old boy who had positive stool cultures and neutralizing serum titers of 1:2,048 for poliomyelitis virus type 3. It is proposed that this unusual involuntary movement disorder was caused by the poliomyelitis virus type 3.
