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… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis associated with parainfluenza virus infection of childhood
TLDR
A 2.5-year-old girl with acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, who developed bilateral symmetrical lesions in the basal ganglion, thalamus, corpus callosum, cerebral subcortical white matter, and cerebellar medulla on brain magnetic resonance imaging is described. Expand
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. Expand
A multiplex RT-PCR for the detection of parainfluenza viruses 1-3 in clinical samples.
TLDR
It is concluded that this method is as sensitive as combined immunofluorescence and tissue culture for the detection of the PIV viruses 1-3 and should be useful for rapid diagnosis of PIV 1- 3 infections. Expand

TLDR
The pathophysiology of RSV bronchiolitis is unknown but clearly involves direct effects of the virus on the airway epithelium, airway immaturity, and recently identified effects ofThe inflammatory response. Expand

TLDR
La inmunidad anti-VRSh nunca llega a ser completa y las reinfecciones son frecuentes en los niños pequeños y las personas de edad avanzada, en quienes the infección por el VRSh representa aproximadamente el 5% of las afeccions respiratorias bajas. Expand

TLDR
Three patients with Reye's syndrome or encephalopathy with fatty degeneration of the viscera were found to have a prior infection with parainfluenza virus types 2 or 3, and it is suggested that the subsequent development of Reye’s syndrome was a directly related sequela of the parain fluenza infection.

Role of the virology laboratory in diagnosis and management of patients with central nervous system disease
TLDR

TLDR
The identification of a specific viral agent in body fluids, especially the CSF, in a patient with aseptic meningitis is of more than academic interest, since it can shorten duration of hospital stay and eliminate unnecessary antimicrobial therapy. Expand

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. Expand
