Description: Caption:
Captured in 1989, this image depicted a Latin-American nurse, and her very young patient. She was in the process of conducting a neurologic exam upon the child’s lower limbs. Note the atrophic changes evident in the boy’s legs, due to his having acquired the poliovirus, and sustaining the ravages of poliomyelitis.
