  1. Poliomyelitis in Malaysia : two confirmed cases after 6 years without polio.

    Article - En anglais

    Poliomyelitis in Malaysia has not been reported since 1986.

    We report two cases of poliomyelitis in non-immunized children whose parents, though relatively educated, opted not to vaccinate their children for socio-cultural reasons.

    This recent trend may interfere with our attempts to eradicate poliomyelitis globally by the year 2000.

    The clinical features, pathophysiology and differential diagnosis are discussed.
