This study reports the pathological findings and the distribution of viral antigen in the brains of 13 confirmed and autopsied cases of Japanese encephalitis (JE) in correlation with other virus-specific immunological parameters measured in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) antemortem. Japanese encephalitis virus (JEV)-specific antibodies were detected in the CSF of 10 of 13 patients, JEV antigen was detected in the CSF of 7 of 13 and JEV-specific immune complexes were detected in the CSF of 3 of… CONTINUE READING
