      Poliomyelitis has appeared in epidemic form, become endemic on a global scale, and been reduced to near-elimination, all within the span of documented medical history. Epidemics of the disease appeared in the late 19th century in many European countries and North America, following which polio became a global disease with annual epidemics. Poliomyelitis, which is caused by the poliovirus, can be transmitted fecal-orally as a smear infection, by droplets as an aerosol infection or by contaminated articles. Up to 95% of the infections are asymptomatic, but the infected person sheds the virus in feces and thus can transmit the .

    Poliomyelitis, or simply Polio, is a highly contagious infectious disease caused by three types of poliovirus. The poliovirus is a virus that destroys nervous system causing paralysis. Types of poliomyelitis. Abortive poliomyelitis: The mildest form.
