Years after contracting the initial polio infection, increasing numbers of polio survivors in Australia have developed a range of symptoms, now recognised as post-polio sequelae.

The time lag from the initial infection to this second phase varies but is commonly approximately 30 years. The onset is usually slow and steady. The objective was to describe new health problems in Danish polio survivors and to find the causes or risk indicators of late onset polio sequelae.

This finding is in accordance with previous studies which did not find a correlation between the age of onset and PPS severity [21], [22], [23], yet at variance with other studies [20].Cited by: 2.
