Thank you for the question.
Why were these tests done? What symptoms are you having? How old are you?
Thank you for replying.
Single titers of Coxsackie B Antibodies more than or equal to 1:32 are indicative of recent infection. So your daughter had a titer of 1:32 which is high and may indicate a Coxsackie virus infection. This infection may sometimes cause complications such as flaccid motor weakness that closely mimics poliovirus infection. So consulting a neurologist is indicated with this result and the presenting symptoms.

This is unlikely to be due to a localized staphylococcal infection and more likely to be due to chronic fatigue syndrome after the viral infection.
A generalized staphylococcal infection will again cause a localized disease such as local soft-tissue infections pyomyositis, septic bursitis, and septic arthritis. It will not cause a generalized muscle weakness and fatigue.
The pneumococcal antibodies low level indicates that there is not sufficient immunity against pneumococcus, however, this is not the cause of the weakness and fatigue.
Yes, this is correct and a possible cause that needs to be considered for these symptoms. However, these lab results don't confirm or deny dermatomyositis which is a completely different disorder.
You are very welcome!!Thank you!
