A poliomyelitislike syndrome likely involving spinal anterior horn cells is the most common mechanism of WNV-associated paralysis and is associated with significant short- and long-term illness and death.
No known infectious process limited to motor axons has been associated with the asymmetric paralysis seen in these patients, so the researchers concluded that the clinical features can be explained only by disease of the anterior horn cells.
Thus, in the context of WNV infection, electrodiagnostic studies previously interpreted as motor axonal polyneuropathy or motor axonopathy without sensory nerve involvement (4-6) are more suggestive of anterior horn cell loss than of Guillain-Barre syndrome.
Autopsy studies have long told us that patients with CNS infection by the poliovirus needed to lose at least 50% of anterior horn cells before detectable muscle strength loss occurred," the authors wrote.
Patients with flaccid paralysis have perivascular lymphocytic infiltration in the spinal cord, microglial nodules, and loss of anterior horn cells (9).
The virus can attack the anterior horn cells, causing acute flaccid paralysis resulting in a poliomyelitis-like syndrome.
