Abstract:

When confronted with a case of apparent sporadic encephalitis, most clinicians focus on the possibility of herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE). The evaluation will be expedited, and antiviral therapy will often be started promptly before the deterioration of consciousness. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is one of a large group, the herpesviruses, that are characterized by their similar morphology, large DNA genomes, and tendency to persist in their natural hosts. The tegument surrounding the capsid consists of a bilayered membrane containing antigenic glycoproteins and lipid. Latent infection can be demonstrated by explantation of ganglion tissue and maintenance in tissue culture or by detection of HSV DNA by PCR. The immunoperoxidase technique is useful for demonstrating HSV antigens on sections of paraffin-embedded material or on smears. Occasional cases of acute encephalitis due to HSV-1 show atypical distribution of damage. The brain stem is the most common site of such atypical infection. It has long been recognized that the damage produced in HSE is largely confined to the limbic system, a group of structures that are closely linked anatomically and functionally. An alternative diagnosis was suggested in three HSV-negative patients—one abscess and two demyelinating disease including acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM). Modifications of treatment with acyclovir have evolved because of the continuing levels of mortality, residual morbidity, and recurrent illness.
