This new volume, the only text focusing exclusively on viral encephalitis in humans, is designed to assist clinicians in the diagnosis and therapy of patients with suspected viral encephalitis

The authors have organized the volume according to the clinical and epidemiological information available at the time of presentation of the patients rather than according to principles of viral taxonomy.

Emphasis is on neuropathological descriptions and pathogenesis concepts, reflecting the authors' belief that an understanding of pathogenesis facilitates the diagnostic process and is central to therapeutic intervention. The authors cover the full range of human encephalitis/encephalopathy, including HIV/AIDS, prion diseases, and smallpox.
