Another Child Diagnosed With the Mystery Polio-Like Virus, This Time in Southern California

A two-year-old toddler from Moorpark California has become the latest child to fall victim to the on-going mystery virus that closely mimics the symptoms of polio.

It all started when Lucian Olivera was 11 months old. He had what doctor’s diagnosed as an ear infection with fever, sadly, within days, the young child couldn’t stand or use his legs per ABClocal.

It was ongoing for months as doctors were baffled as they scrambled to figure out what exactly was wrong.

“I felt helpless. It was extremely frustrating. It was hard to sit and not be able to help him,” the toddler’s mom, Erin said per CBSlocal.

This week, doctors at Stanford University Medical Center were able to confirm the official diagnosis, that being,  California polio-like syndrome.

“You don’t realize what you have until something goes really, really wrong,” Erin said.

There have been 20 cases of the paralyzing mystery virus reported in California thus far. However, doctors believe that this is the first case to be confirmed in Southern California.

“We are at no way at an epidemic level and there does not appear to be concern that this is rapidly spreading through the community,” Dr. John Dingilian, with Simi Valley Hospital said.

The vigorous research is ongoing as doctors and specialists investigate all the possibilites.

“Really, it’s unknown the severity of this for each individual. The thought is that it is permanent, but we don’t know all the things that will happen to every patient,” Dr. Dingilian said.

For now, Lucian requires a brace for his left leg, as the paralysis is considered to be permanent, and it’s likely that he will never be able to walk on his own. He is currently undergoing physical therapy to strengthen his muscles, and the hope is that one day he will be able to walk using a cane instead of a walker.

Throughout this heart-breaking ordeal, the toddler’s mom does her best to remain optimistic and says her son’s smile and determination keeps everyone going.

“When you’re having a moment of down, he’ll go, ‘Momma, I love you more than a camel.’ And you just melt,” said Erin. “We have to remain strong for him.”
