ABSTRACT
Objective To study the relationship between infection and hypokalemic paralysis and its clinical features.Methods A systemic analysis was made on the infection courses,clinical manifestations, serum levels of potassium and creatine phosphokinase,the results of electrophysiological and virological examinations in present 34 patients and 115 cases reported in literature with hypokalemic paralysis.Results There were differences in the clinical manifestations and denominations among the present and reported cases. No definite evidences for virus infections were found among patients who were characterized by acute flaccid paralysis accompanied with hypokalemia in the infection curses. The prognosis of the disorder was better after the patients were given potassium, and most of them didn't recur.Conclusion No enough evidences showed that this disorder was an independent disease.It should be named as "concomitant infectious hypokalemic paralysis" appropriately. It was probably a syndrome accompanied by infection on the base of hereditary susceptibility.
