ABSTRACT
The article presents the poliomyelitis-type illness associated with severe asthma in a child. The case has been described which are clinically so similar that there would seem to be a direct relationship between the asthma and the paralysis. They have also argued that the asthmatic attack may, in some way, alter the immune state of the patient, under these circumstances, an otherwise innocuous virus might behave in a different way.
