Question: Hello Doctor,

One of my cousin went for an alliance visit and found that bride's father aged 54 was infected with polio.

Questions -

1) If my cousin (bridegroom) marries this bride, would that cause any problems in the future for the baby they have?

2) Is Polio genetically inherited ?

3) Is Polio a communicable disease from one human to another due to touch or contact of the germs in air?

Regards,
Srikanth.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing to us.

I shall answer your questions one by one.,

1) If my cousin (bridegroom) marries this bride, would that cause any problems in the future for the baby they have?

------Not at al

2) Is Polio genetically inherited ?

----- No polio is an infection and is not inherited.

3) Is Polio a communicable disease from one human to another due to touch or contact of the germs in air?

-------- Polio spreads through stools in the infective stage. Now the person is not in the infective stage. He might have paralysis due to the infection he might have got it in his childhood.

By no way he can transmit the infection to any.
