Since the outbreak of enterovirus D68 (EV-D68) in the USA in 2014, the association between infection with EV-D68 and acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) has been well described. EV-D68 has been detected before in Denmark, but this is the first case report of EV-D68 in the respiratory tract of a one-year-old child with AFM. Simultaneously, another child with EV-D68 detected in a respiratory tract sample was admitted, who had a severe respiratory tract infection without AFM, needing two weeks of intensive care treatment.
