Abstract

A 62‐year‐old patient who had had acute paralytic poliomyelitis in early childhood developed bilateral lower limb muscle pseudohypertrophy. The pseudohypertrophy was caused primarily by an enormous excess of adipose tissue replacing muscle fibers, and, in part, by work hypertrophy of muscle fibers.
