- The postpolio syndrome is
characterized by new onset of muscle weakness and fatigue many years after recovery from acute paralytic poliomyelitis. We present a case of 55 year old male with clinical features of slowly progressing muscle wasting and mild weakness of right arm for 2 years and previous history of acute paralytic poliomyelitis.
Electromyographic findings and right biceps brachii muscle biopsy showed evidences of acute denervation superimposed on chronic denervation-reinnervation.
