Adenovirus-induced Acute Necrotizing Encephalopathy in a Previously Healthy Infant- A case report
AbstractAcute necrotizing encephalopathy of childhood has been described as a rare entity that usually affects immunocompetent infants and children, mainly in East Asia, and typically after a viral infection. We describe the case of an 8-month-old, previously healthy Lebanese boy, who presented with fever and seizures and was found to have acute necrotizing encephalopathy with Adenovirus detected in the CSF. The clinical presentation and laboratory and radiological findings are described, and the outcomes are discussed.
