OR hasn't had any cases of AFM this year.

The CDC began tracking the cases in 2014 after seeing an uptick in the number of cases. But there is a suspected case in Buffalo involving a 3-year-old boy.

A rare condition that can cause muscle weakness and trouble breathing has been reported in Kansas City.

The disease is not new but the cause remains unknown.

The increase in AFM cases has coincided with a national outbreak of sever respiratory illnesses caused by enterovirus D68 (EV-D68), a non-polio virus, according to the report.
