In the movie version, Tiny Tim has a crutch and sometimes a chronic cough. He is a very sickly child on the verge of death. However, due to the change of heart and the generosity of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tim survives. So, what was wrong with him?

Thanks for the good information.
Was there a vaccine then?
I don't think so. It was not till after 1900 that Salk developed the first vaccine. I was thinking that there was some kind of treatment that would help children with polio back in the days of Dickinson.Daniel's answer may be more on track.
