In the past few years, many polio survivors have experienced late-onset neuromuscular symptoms such as fatigue, pain, new, and unusual muscular deficits and decreased functional abilities. Post polio syndrome (PPS) refers to a clinical disorder affecting polio survivors with sequel years after the initial polio attack. The purpose of the present study was to present the results of electrodiagnostic findings in muscle weakness encountered in PPS. Study was suggestive of ongoing axonal degeneration in Rt. Deltoid, biceps, and both soleus muscles with regeneration. Presence of new symptoms of weakness and fatigue in some muscles previously not affected by poliomyelitis and electrodiagnostic findings were suggestive of a diagnosis of PPS.
