Ajnr Herpes Encephalitis

MR Imaging of Human Herpesvirus-6Associated Encephalitis in 4 Patients with Anterograde Amnesia after Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem-Cell Transplantation. Prophylactic oral acyclovir was discontinued, and empiric treatment for herpes simplex encephalitis was initiated with high-dose intravenous acyclovir. AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 2001; 22: 31416. Because syphilis is not routinely tested for, awareness of this mimicry of herpes simplex virus encephalitis is important, considering the potential therapeutic implications. Herpes simplex (HSV) encephalitis is the most common cause of fatal sporadic fulminant necrotizing viral encephalitis and has characteristic imaging findings.

Imaging In Herpes Encephalitis

The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings in eight patients with herpes simplex meningoencephalitis were reviewed: 14 examinations were analysed.


Both paraneoplastic and nonparaneoplastic encephalitis share many clinical features and also have some that are distinctive. Herpes simplex encephalitis relapse with chorea is associated with autoantibodies to N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptor or dopamine-2 receptor. Experience with brain biopsy for suspected herpes encephalitis: review of forty consecutive cases. HHV6, HHV8, CMV, EBV, Parvo B19, Mycoplasma, Adenovirus, JCV, BKV. Viral encephalitis (as well as sarcoidosis) may also produce enhancement along the cranial nerves, in addition to the brain surface. The corticalgyral enhancement in herpes encephalitis may lag behind the onset of signs and symptoms and may be suppressed by steroid medications; thus, the absence of enhancement does not exclude encephalitis. AJNR Am J Neuroradiol1990; 11: 935938. Limbic Encephalitis in a 41 Year-Old Female with a Mediastinal Mass and Behavior Changes. La causa ms comn de esta patologa es el virus del herpes simple humano 6, un virus neurotrpico latente en la mayora de adultos, que puede, en algunos casos, ocasionar una encefalitis lmbica similar a la causada por el herpes virus o el virus de la varicela zoster, y que se ha descrito frecuentemente en pacientes con inmunidad comprometida (18, 19). AJNR Am J Neuroradiol.

Paraneoplastic And Autoimmune Encephalitis

Neurosyphilis Exhibiting MRI Abnormalities Mimicking Limbic Encephalitis. A Herpes simplex PCR test of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) on admission was reported as negative, but steroid pulse therapy was started based on the tentative diagnosis of nonherpetic acute limbic encephalitis. AJNR Am J Neuroradiol. Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome PRES (also known as reversible posterior leukoencephalopathy syndrome) presents with rapid onset of symptoms including headache, seizures, altered consciousness, and visual disturbance (1, 2). Infective encephalitis or meningitis, particularly herpes simplex encephalitis (Figure 3) , should be considered, and rapid treatment with intravenous acyclovir and antibiotics may be lifesaving while a diagnosis is still being pursued. AJNR Am J Neuroradiol 2008; 29: 10439.
