The authors present two immunocompetent children with parainfluenza type 3 meningitis. In each case, the outcome was favorable without detectable complications. The authors reviewed the literature, showing that central nervous system (CNS) involvement by parainfluenza viruses has rarely been described but may present with a variety of neurologic syndromes. Pediatricians and laboratory personnel should recognize that these viruses, commonly known to produce respiratory syndromes, can also be a…

Meningitis due to parainfluenza virus type 3: report of two cases and review.
TLDR
Clinicians should be aware that parainfluenza virus type 3, one of the most common causes of viral respiratory infection in infancy, can also produce infection of the CNS and that hemadsorption testing of CSF specimens submitted for viral culture is necessary for detecting these paramyxoviruses.
[Severe acute disseminated encephalomyelitis associated with parainfluenza 3 infection: Case report].
TLDR
A male patient aged 25, with ADEM associated to parainfluenza 3 virus respiratory infection that required mechanical ventilation and that had a complete recovery only after plasmapheresis is reported.
The landscape of extrapulmonary manifestations of human parainfluenza viruses: A systematic narrative review
TLDR
The data support the hypothesis that HPIV infection is one of the possible causes of these alterations and may even be the direct cause in some cases.
UNIVERSIDADE FEDERAL DO RIO GRANDE DO SUL FACULDADE DE AGRONOMIA PROGRAMA DE PÓS-GRADUAÇÃO EM MICROBIOLOGIA AGRÍCOLA E DO AMBIENTE
TLDR
There are many problems with the classification of microbial diversity and that must be considered in attempts to control biodeterioration of buildings, according to the current literature.
Simultaneous Aseptic Meningitis and Acute Non-Mumps Associated
TLDR
Three patients diagnosed with aseptic meningitis due to acute non-mumps associated parotitis are reviewed and PCR or enzyme linkedimmunosorbent assay (ELISA) on serum or cerebrospinal fluid would be the inevitable basis for accurate diagnosis in such cases.

During the first half of this century, poliomyelitis was the most prevalent epidemic acute nonbacterial CNS disease. Indeed, the paralytic consequences were so severe and costly that scientific
Parainfluenza virus type 3: isolation from CSF of a patient with Guillain-Barré syndrome.
TLDR
The isolation of parainfluenza virus type 3 from the CSF of a 19-year-old man with Guillain-Barré syndrome shows that some strains show a neurotropism not previously appreciated.
Role of the virology laboratory in diagnosis and management of patients with central nervous system disease
TLDR
By providing a rapid diagnostic test or isolation of the virus or both, the virology laboratory plays a direct role in guiding antiviral therapy for patients with herpes simplex encephalitis, and attention needs to be paid to enteroviruses.

Early testing of cell cultures for detection of hemadsorbing viruses
Hemadsorption of primary monkey kidney cell cultures was commenced at 1 day after inoculation to evaluate how rapidly influenza A virus, influenza B virus, and parainfluenza virus types 1, 2, and 3
Glycoproteins of human parainfluenza virus type 3: characterization and evaluation as a subunit vaccine.
TLDR
Animals immunized with the highest dose of envelope glycoproteins showed complete protection from challenge infection, whereas immunization with inactivated virus did not completely protect animals.
Parainfluenza virus type 3: seasonality and risk of infection and reinfection in young children.
TLDR
In Houston the temporal occurrence of infections with parainfluenza virus type 3 has evolved from an endemic to an epidemic pattern, and the risk for infection was greater during the second year for the smaller proportion of children who escaped infection during the first year.
Neurological, Electroencephalographic, and Virological Findings in Febrile Children
TLDR
Investigation of febrile children found permanent neurological damage and prolonged EEG abnormalities were found significantly more often in children with, than in those without, viral disease, whether or not fits had occurred.
The clinical relevance of 'CSF viral culture'. A two-year experience with aseptic meningitis in Rochester, NY.
TLDR
The clinical relevance of CSF viral cultures was evaluated by reviewing the records of 390 patients whose CSF was cultured for virus during a two-year period and enterovirus was the only virus isolated from the CSF during the study period.
