Coxsackie virus strains as well as ECHO viruses can cause a poliomyelitis-type
disease in humans. These viruses are included in the same family and sub-
grouping, Enteroviruses, as poliovirus. They're spread by fecal-oral route
and mostly cause mild GI upset. Occasionally( <5% of those infected),
involvement of the central nervous system occurs and a meningitis or a
encephalomeningitis results. Recovery is the most common outcome but these
are serious, sometimes fatal, diseases.
