Dengue fever continues to be an important cause of morbidity and mortality in tropical and subtropical countries. A wide range of neurological manifestations including dengue encephalopathy, Guillain-Barre syndrome, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, transverse myelitis, cranial nerve palsies, and myositis have been reported following dengue infection. But parkinsonism secondary to dengue virus infection is uncommon, with only three published case reports in adults and one in children. We… Expand
Stereotypy with Parkinsonism as a Rare Sequelae of Dengue Encephalitis: A Case Report and Literature Review
A rare case of a 25-year-old young man who developed stereotypy and parkinsonism following dengue virus encephalitis is reported, which expands the spectrum of movement disorders seen in d Dengue infection. Expand
Leptospira Triggered Anti-N-Methyl-d-Aspartate Receptor Encephalitis.
An adolescent girl, who developed anti-N-methyl-d-aspartate receptor encephalitis after the resolution of systemic symptoms of leptospirosis is reported, whose symptoms including neuropsychiatric and extrapyramidal features and sleep disturbances resolved completely after immunotherapy. Expand
Differences between Cerebral Organoids Derived from a non-PD and a Parkinson’s Patient: A Potential Vulnerability for Neuroinvasive Viruses
Organoids derived from a Parkinson’s patient exhibited endogenous up-regulation of dopamine and muscarinic acetylcholine receptors, GABA, glycine, and glutamate targets, and the majority of cytokines, which suggests a chronic state of neuroexcitation and neuroinflammation in this population of organoids.

Post-dengue parkinsonism
Clinicians are urged to consider parkinsonism as a complication following dengue infection to prevent injudicious treatment with L-dopa and dopamine agonists. Expand
Post encephalitic parkinsonism following dengue viral infection
Recognition and treatment of rare complications like post encephalitic parkinsonism following dengue viral infection is difficult without great clinical suspicion. Expand
Post-dengue encephalopathy and Parkinsonism.
Clinicians should consider the possibility of post-dengue Parkinsonism in children with a history of pyrexia from endemic areas of d Dengue and expand the neurologic manifestations associated with dengue infection in children. Expand
Post-Herpetic Autoimmune Encephalitis
This case highlights the importance of recognizing postherpetic autoimmune encephalitis in children as the treatment is entirely different and needs to be initiated early for improved neurological outcome. Expand
Neurological Manifestations of Dengue Infection
The main neurological complications of dengue virus infection, such as central nervous system (CNS), peripheral nervous system, and ophthalmic complications were discussed according to clinical features, treatment and possible pathogenesis. Expand
Viral parkinsonism.
The neurological sequelae of infection by influenza virus as well as that of other viruses known to induce parkinsonism including Coxsackie, Japanese encephalitis B, St. Louis, West Nile and HIV viruses are discussed. Expand
Neurological complication of dengue infection.
In countries endemic to d Dengue, it will be prudent to investigate for dengue infection in patients with fever and acute neurological manifestations, and there is need for understanding of the pathogenesis of various neurological manifestations. Expand
Parkinsonism following basal ganglia infarction in Dengue fever
Dengue fever is an acute febrile viral illness characterized by severe headache, myalgia, arthralgia, rashes, leucopenia and thrombocytopenia. Patients may face haemorrhagic complications likeExpand
Herpes simplex virus–1 encephalitis can trigger anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis: Case report
An adult with this disorder is reported, it is demonstrated that synthesis of NMDAR antibodies began after HSVE, and relapsing symptoms were due to steroid-responsive anti-NMDAR encephalitis. Expand
