Two cases of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), diagnosed in Croatia in 2002, were investigated. The coding regions of the matrix (M), hemagglutinin (H) and nucleoprotein (N) genes of measles virus were sequenced following direct RT-PCR amplification of viral RNA extracted from brain tissue. Phylogenetic analysis of the sequences of H and N genes,(More)
