The study of the epidemiology of infantile paralysis must take into consideration three types of the disease, namely: 1. The mild abortive type representing a systematic infection. 2. The non-paralytic meningic type representing invasion of the central nervous system by the virus. 3. The paralytic type indicating destruction of the cells in the anterior horn of the spinal cord.
