parkinsonism was widespread around the world as a sequelae to the pandemic of von Economo's encephalitis in the years around the 1920s.

The patient, who was totally dependent for personal care and instrumental activities of daily living, was diagnosed with postencephalitic
Unrecognized hypopituitarism may be misdiagnosed as persistent neurologic sequel or cognitive impairment in TBI; pituitary abscess can be misinterpreted as a pituitary adenoma, while pituitary insufficiency following meningoencephalitis may be misunderstood as postencephalitic
13 patients had already received treatment for meningitis from outside and later diagnosed as partially treated septic meningitis, 5 patients were already receiving antitubercular treatment and had neurological sequelae, 2 patients had postencephalitic
sequelae and 2 patients were diagnosed as acute leukemia.
This protein is implicated in neurodegeneration in many disorders, such as AD, progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP), corticobasal degeneration (CBD), Pick's disease (PiD), Down's syndrome (DS), postencephalitic
Parkinsonism, and Niemann-Pick disease [34-36].
In the rest of the three (30%) cases, causes for symptomatic epilepsy were, sub-acute sclerosing panencephalitis, postencephalitic
sequel and myoclonic encephalopathy.
Infectious or inflammatory states: Rheumatic chorea (Sydenham's chorea or Saint Vitus' dance), infectious or autoimmune encephalitic or postencephalitic
states, lupus cerebritis, multiple sclerosis
* Central Nervous System Problems that include encephalitis, postencephalitic
Parkinson's disease, Guillain-Barre syndrome, and possibly amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).
* Secondary parkinsonism, which includes drug-induced parkinsonism and postencephalitic
Epidemiologic studies have associated early-life viral infections to postencephalitic
PD; case reports, on the other hand, tend to relate viral infections to the development of acute parkinsonism (Bhatt et al.
Some of the past names have been Postencephalitic
Behavior Disorder (1920s), Minimal Brain Dysfunction (1960s), Hyperkinetic Reaction to Childhood (1968), and Attention Deficit Disorder with and without hyperactivity (1980).
