Abstract

We here describe a patient with a history of recurrent HSV-2 meningitis who had been free from symptoms for almost 20 y when he developed an acute encephalomyelitis. The clinical course laboratory and radiological findings support an acute multiphasic disseminated encephalomyelitis induced by a recurrent HSV-2 infection.
