Stanford's Dr. Keith Van Haren says about 20 cases have been identified in California in the past year and a half and they're the only ones in the U.S.

Van Haren says the five cases he studied had been vaccinated against polio. He plans to talk to the media about the illness Monday evening from Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford.
