Taiwan has experienced several outbreaks of enterovirus 71 (EV71) infections since 1998. This study examined the quantitative relationship between specific cytokines in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the severity of EV71 brain stem encephalitis (BE), and investigated whether the CSF cytokine response differed from that to uncomplicated echovirus meningitis (EM). The study included 57 children with EV71 BE, of whom 24 had isolated BE, 24 had autonomic nervous system (ANS) dysregulation, and… CONTINUE READING
