A 10-year-old girl presented with faucial diphtheria, 2 weeks following which she presented with acute flaccid paralysis (AFP). The case was notified to the district polio surveillance officer and was epidemiologically investigated. Outer ring immunization was done and her stool samples were negative for wild polio. The case was thus labelled nonpolio AFP postdiphtheria.
