  • Chikungunya and the nervous system: what we do and do not know. [Review]
    Rev Med Virol. 2009 May; 19(3):121-9.Arpino C, Curatolo P, Rezza G
  • Chikungunya virus (CHIKV), an alphavirus transmitted by mosquitoes of the Aedes genus, has recently re-emerged, causing epidemics on Indian Ocean Islands and the Indian subcontinent, and an unexpected outbreak in north-eastern Italy. CHIKV infection was first reported to affect the nervous system in the 1960s; in the early 1970s it was found to be associated with meningoencephalopathy, myelitis, …
  • Iopamidol-induced meningoencephalopathy in an HIV-seropositive patient. [Journal Article]
    Proc (Bayl Univ Med Cent). 2007 Jan; 20(1):39-40.Stroup JS, Stephens JR, Baker DL
  • Central nervous system infectious and metabolic abnormalities are common in HIV-positive patients. Drug therapy, opportunistic infections, the clinical course of HIV disease itself, and very rarely iodinated radiographic contrast agents can all be linked to these abnormalities. The following case describes an HIV-seropositive patient who developed encephalopathy after undergoing a cervical myelog…
  • West nile virus meningoencephalitis during pregnancy. [Case Reports]
    J La State Med Soc. 2004 Jul-Aug; 156(4):204-5.Bruno J, Rabito FJ, Dildy GA
  • CONCLUSIONS: West Nile virus infection during pregnancy does not uniformly result in maternal-fetal transmission. Further research is necessary in order to counsel parents appropriately about potential adverse fetal effects.
  • [Outbreak of aseptic meningitis in Iwamizawa, 1997, caused by echovirus 30]. [Journal Article]
    Kansenshogaku Zasshi. 1998 Jul; 72(7):747-52.Sato T
  • To investigate the clinical character of an outbreak of aseptic meningitis in Iwamizawa 1997 caused by echovirus 30, and to investigate the spreading of the outbreak, we analyzed clinical character of 75 hospitalized patients in our hospital, and mapped the patients' distribution in Iwamizawa City each week. We detected in our hospital an epidemic outbreak of acute enteroviral meningitis caused b…
  • Optic disk swelling and abducens palsies associated with OKT3. [Case Reports]
    Am J Ophthalmol. 1995 May; 119(5):664-5.Strominger MB, Liu GT, Schatz NJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Results of magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance angiography were unremarkable. Lumbar puncture disclosed increased intracranial pressure and sterile meningeal inflammation. Most of the symptoms resolved by one week after discontinuation of OKT3. Ophthalmologists and neurologists should be aware that optic disk swelling and abducens palsies can be associated with OKT3 when used in the treatment of transplanted kidney graft rejection.
  • Fatal fungal endarteritis caused by Bipolaris spicifera following replacement of the aortic valve. [Case Reports]
    Clin Infect Dis. 1992 Feb; 14(2):596-8.Ogden PE, Hurley DL, Cain PT
  • A 73-year-old man presented to our hospital 5 months after a porcine replacement of an aortic valve with persistent fevers, meningoencephalopathy, and progressive renal failure; evidence of systemic emboli was found subsequently. The results of an exhaustive evaluation were negative except for two of 23 blood cultures that were performed; each of these two cultures yielded one colony of Drechsler…
  • Meningoencephalitis and peripheral neuropathy complicating adult Still's disease. [Case Reports]
    J Rheumatol. 1990 May; 17(5):698-700.Denault A, Dimopoulos MA, Fitzcharles MA
  • We describe a patient with adult onset Still's disease (AOSD) who developed meningoencephalitis, sensorimotor peripheral neuropathy and uveitis during the course of disease. An abnormal cerebrospinal fluid and changes on nerve conduction studies substantiated the diagnoses of these unusual complications. The meningoencephalopathy improved before corticosteriod treatment, and the peripheral neurop…
