Some 38 cases of acute flaccid myelitis, or AFM, have been confirmed in 16 states across the nation through September 30, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which has been monitoring and investigating an increasing number of cases of AFM since 2014.
At this point there isnt evidence that would point to a single source of illness among these cases, said Dr. Scott Lindquist, state infectious disease epidemiologist at the Department of Health. NYSDOH reports suspect cases of AFM due to EV-D68 to CDC for further investigation, and no cases have been confirmed in New York State in 2018 thus far. In 2017 there were three cases, and since the beginning of 2018 there has been one case in the state.

Various viruses can cause AFM, including West Nile and enteroviruses.
While the illness has been seen mostly in children, there are some adult cases reported as well, with the Michigan Department of Public Health's Lynn Sutfin pointing to one in the state. Most of the cases that CDC has learned about have been in children.
