Brief Summary:
Our study evaluates the efficacy of IGIV treatment in PPS on clinical (walking and pain) and isokinetic (muscle strength) criteria, on patients with PS at Montpellier's Hospital

Condition or disease
Post-Poliomyélitis Syndrom

Detailed Description:

Patients are admitted to a multidisciplinary consultation (neurologist, PMK) to validate the indication of treatment with IGIV. Realization of a pre-therapeutic evaluation in the department of MPR on the criteria of judgment, then the patient is admitted in a service of neurology to benefit from the cure of IGIV.
