Unusual Magnetic Resonance Imaging Features of Scrub Typhus Encephalitis.
Neurol India. 2022 Mar-Apr; 70(2):760-763.NI

Abstract

Scrub typhus is an acute febrile illness caused by Orientia tsutsugamushi. The diagnosis of scrub typhus relies on the patient's history of exposure, clinical manifestations, and results of serological tests. Our patient had a history of altered sensorium, inability to walk, and macular rashes predominantly distributed over the chest and bilateral upper limbs. Post serological testing, the patient was referred to the radiology department for MRI brain. Radiologically, MRI being a superior modality helps in the evaluation of lesions in depth, helping to simplify the diagnosis of meningitis, scrub typhus encephalitis, and other related conditions. Various findings have been described in scrub typhus encephalitis in MR brain imaging, and our case shows an unusual finding in brain imaging.
