Fulminant subacute sclerosing panencephalitis presenting with acute ataxia and hemiparesis in a 15-year-old boy.
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a delayed and fatal manifestation of measles infection. Fulminant SSPE is a rare presentation in which the disease progresses to death over a period of 6 months. The clinical features are atypical and can

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in pregnancy.
We present a case of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis that developed in a previously healthy 29-year-old pregnant woman who had returned from a trip to rural India shortly before the onset of symptoms. She was admitted to hospital at 27 weeks' ges

Blindness, dancing extremities, and corpus callosum and brain stem involvement: an unusual presentation of fulminant subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
A 4-year-old girl presented with acute visual loss followed 2 weeks later with loss of speech and audition, fulminant neuroregression, and choreo-athetoid movements of extremities. Fundus showed bilateral chorioretinitis. Electroencephalography showe

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis with parkinsonian features in a child: A case report.
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) can present with atypical clinical signs which may result in delayed diagnosis and treatment. We present a child with SSPE whose initial manifestation was parkinsonism.

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in a child with recurrent febrile seizures.
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a devastating disease of the central nervous system (CNS) caused by persistent mutant measles virus infection. The diagnosis of SSPE is based on characteristic clinical and EEG findings and demonstration

Granzyme B gene polymorphism associated with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
 Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a late complication of measles infection. Immune dysfunction related to genetic susceptibility has been considered in disease pathogenesis. A functional single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of granzyme B

Neuronal loss is an early component of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
We performed diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) studies in a group of patients with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) in order to estimate the pathologic process underlying the phenotypic variability.

Mesenchymal stem cell application in children with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis.
Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a serious, often fatal disease that responds poorly to current treatment modalities. Recently, the ability of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) to produce neurotrophic factors and inflammatory molecules has p
