Tick paralysis is the only tick -borne disease that is not caused by an infectious organism. The illness is caused by a neurotoxin produced in the tick ' s salivary gland.

Tick paralysis can cause intense paralysis that starts in the lower body and works its way up. Children tend to be affected by tick paralysis more than adults, says Amesh Adalja, M.D., an infectious disease expert and senior scholar at the John' s Hopkin' s Center for Health Security.

Malia Radmore is usually an energetic toddler, running around, so when she began crawling on Wednesday, her mother Melissa Radmore just thought she was playing.

The mother , originally from Germany, said : ‘ Ticks are very common in Germany.

Radmore said doctors and technicians ran a series of tests trying to figure out what was wrong — meanwhile the condition worsened.

'We didn't think she was going to make it'

"She was deteriorating. She couldn't — it started with her legs — she couldn't walk. It went to her arms, it went to her head. She wasn't able to swallow herself. She was totally paralyzed," she said.

Radmore said the medical focus was on her daughter's brain, with doctors wondering if there was a tumour causing a neurological issue.

But then she said she made a discovery that revealed the problem.

"We were laying in bed and I was playing with her hair," said Radmore. "All of a sudden, I felt something in her hair. I thought maybe it was gum, because it looked like gum. So I went to pull it out and it moved."

Tick paralysis is a rare disease that' s thought to be caused by a toxin in tick saliva The condition can also lead to flu-like symptoms such as muscles aches and tiredness. Most previous cases of tick paralysis have been reported in children; typically girls, according to a 2012 report on the condition.

Tick paralysis is caused salivary neurotoxins from an engorged, egg-laden female tick of the following species: American dog tick (Dermacentor variabilis), Lone star tick (Amblyomma americanum), Rocky Mountain wood tick (Dermacentor andersoni), Deer tick or Blacklegged tick (Ixodes scapularis).

It was a tick — an engorged tick that had been feeding for days.

Radmore said the doctors removed the arachnid, which seemed to lead to a further decline in her daughter's paralysis.

"When they pulled the tick out it released more toxins," she said. "She was on her deathbed, literally she was deteriorating in front of us. We didn't think she was going to make it, and it was really scary."

Within about 18 hours, Malia Radmore had begun to improve. She was discharged from hospital on Saturday.

Melissa Radmore figured her daughter picked up the tick last Saturday, when they were at Langley's Williams Park. She said the doctors told her it was a Rocky Mountain wood tick, although they are typically found east of the Coast Mountains.

Paralysis from ticks is rare

A spokesperson with the Provincial Health Services Authority confirmed Malia Radmore was treated for a tick bite and spent four days in hospital, but didn't have any information to add about the species of tick, or paralytic condition.

Paralysis from a tick bite is quite rare. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control doesn't officially track cases, but its public health lab typically consults on zero to two cases each year.

According to HealthLink B.C., paralysis is caused by the venom secreted by female ticks when feeding, and symptoms typically begin four to seven days after a tick attaches itself to a person. Paralysis from a tick bite is more common in children than adults.
