Summaries for Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome

NINDS : 54 Post-polio syndrome (PPS) is a condition that affects polio survivors many years after recovery from an initial attack of the poliomyelitis virus. PPS is characterized by a further weakening of muscles that were previously affected by the polio infection. The most common symptoms include slowly progressive muscle weakness, fatigue (both general and muscular), and a decrease in muscle size (muscular atrophy). Pain from joint deterioration and increasing skeletal deformities such as scoliosis are common. Some individuals experience only minor symptoms, while others develop more visible muscle weakness and atrophy.  PPS is rarely life-threatening but the symptoms can interfere significantly with the individual's capacity to function independently.   While polio is contagious, PPS is not transmissible.  Only a polio survivor can develop PPS.

MalaCards based summary : Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome, also known as postpolio syndrome, is related to motor neuron disease and lateral sclerosis. An important gene associated with Postpoliomyelitis Syndrome is TARDBP (TAR DNA Binding Protein). The drugs Modafinil and Armodafinil have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skeletal muscle, testes and brain, and related phenotypes are dysarthria and muscle weakness

Disease Ontology : 12 A poliomyelitis that results in atrophy located in muscle, many years after the initial infection, has material basis in Human poliovirus 1, has material basis in Human poliovirus 2, or has material basis in Human poliovirus 3. It is characterized by new weakening in muscles that were previously affected by the polio infection and in muscles that were unaffected. The infection has symptom muscle weakness, has symptom muscle pain, has symptom sleep apnea, and has symptom breathing problems.

NIH Rare Diseases : 53 Post polio syndrome (PPS) is a condition that affects polio survivors years after recovery from the initial polio illness. Symptoms and severity vary among affected people and may include muscle weakness and a gradual decrease in the size of muscles (atrophy); muscle and joint pain; fatigue; difficulty with gait; respiratory problems; and/or swallowing problems. Only a polio survivor can develop PPS. While polio is a contagious disease, PPS is not. The exact cause of PPS years after the first episode of polio is unclear, although several theories have been proposed. Treatment focuses on reducing symptoms and improving quality of life.
