The following day, NCDPH was notified that the patient's brother, aged 11 years, was also ill with symptoms consistent with viral meningoencephalitis
. Laboratory testing confirmed that both siblings had evidence of recent LACV infection (Table).
In hindsight, SLEV infection is consistent with the patient's clinical presentation, with pneumonitis and respiratory decompensation possibly resulting from aspiration during the patient's AMS from viral meningoencephalitis
. Deaths from SLEV infection during the first 2 weeks are generally from encephalitis, whereas later deaths are more often caused by complications of hospitalization, such as this patient's bronchopneumonia.
Nine SFTS patients (75%) included three patients with hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis histiocytosis (HLH) who recovered, while three (25%) patients (aged 58, 70, and 74 years, respectively) ultimately died of viral meningoencephalitis
, status epilepticus, coma, hyoxemia and encephaledema at day 8, 9, and 10 day in the course of illness, respectively.
RESULTS: There were 53 cases of bacterial meningitis, 27 cases of viral meningoencephalitis
, 13 cases of tubercular meningitis and 28 cases of control group.
But in a study published Monday 4 in the journal Pediatrics, researchers suggest she was a victim of viral meningoencephalitis
, which inflames the brain and the membranes that protect the central nervous system.
Complicated malaria may closely mimic other commonly prevalent infections like enteric fever, leptospirosis, dengue haemorrhagic fever, acute viral hepatitis, viral meningoencephalitis
, scrub typhus and severe sepsis of obscure origin.
Cognitive rehabilitation of naming deficits following viral meningoencephalitis
. Arquivos de Neuropsiquiatria, 60(1), 21-27.
* She was empirically treated for bacterial and viral meningoencephalitis
. Her condition continued to decline, and she was transferred to a higher level of care in another facility on June 19, but died shortly thereafter.
A cerebrospinal fluid sample from the boy contained EV-A71 and pneumococcal bacteria, suggesting combined bacterial and viral meningoencephalitis
. The boy died of meningoencephalitis on day 5 after disease onset.
Her mental status improved over several days, and she was discharged on August 26 with a presumptive diagnosis of viral meningoencephalitis
. Serum and CSF samples collected on August 21 (day 14 of illness) subsequently tested positive for JEV-specific IgM and neutralizing antibodies at CDC.
Epidemiologic analysis of an unexplained outbreak of acute viral meningoencephalitis
in Jiashi County, Xinjiang [in Chinese].
Because early identification of cases is important in reducing the risk for arboviral disease through vector-control practices and changes in human activity patterns, health-care providers should consider arboviruses in the differential diagnosis of viral meningoencephalitis
, obtain appropriate specimens for serologic testing, and promptly report cases to state health departments.
