This consensus publication is an article that provides an evidence-based analysis of recommendations for patient care for those diagnosed with AFM.
The article is entitled “Acute flaccid myelitis: cause, diagnosis and management” and it was published in the medical journal, The Lancet. A former James T. Lubin Fellow of the Siegel Rare Neuroimmune Association, Dr. Olwen Murphy, led the publication of this work.
