Acute Flaccid Paralysis as an Unusual Presenting Symptom of Japanese Encephalitis: A Case Report and Review of the Literature

From the experience of this case, it is cautioned that a history of vaccination for JE with the Nakayama strain may not provide a complete protection against natural infection in the community; and in Taiwan or any area where JE remains an endemic disease, Japanese virus encephalitis infection should be considered as a differential diagnosis in any adult presenting with acute flaccid paralysis.

Clinical profiles and some associated factors of Japanese encephalitis in Bali

It showed that pig owning and rice farming were significantly associated with JE, and Pig owning and Rice farming are associated factors.

[Investigation of adenovirus isolation frequency from the stool samples of patients suspected with acute flaccid paralysis].

The frequencies of Adenovirus positivity between the patients and their contacts were statistically significant and in agreement with the studies that support the relationship of AdVs with AFP, it is obvious that further molecular and clinical studies are needed.

Clinical profile of acute flaccid paralysis.

Clinical course, cause and outcome of Acute Flaccid Paralysis in children in Bangladesh, where Guillain Barre Syndrome was the commonest followed by encephalomyelitis, were determined.

Acute flaccid paralysis as the initial manifestation of Japanese encephalitis: a case report.

JE needs to be added to the differential diagnosis of AFP initiating in an adult in JE endemic seasons and areas, following a case of AFP as the initial manifestation of JE in a Chinese patient.

Acute Flaccid Paralysis and West Nile Virus Infection

Clinical and electrodiagnostic data suggested the involvement of spinal anterior horn cells, resulting in a poliomyelitis-like syndrome, and in areas in which transmission is occurring, WNV infection should be considered in patients with acute flaccid paralysis.

The virological and clinical features of 8 children who presented with adenovirus-associated acute flaccid paralysis (AFP) during an epidemic of enterovirus type 71 (EV71)-associated hand-foot-and-mouth disease in Sarawak, Malaysia, in 1997 suggest that Ad21 might cause AFP by anterior horn cell damage or neuropathy of the brachial or lumbosacral plexus.



Guillain-Barré syndrome in northern China. Relationship to Campylobacter jejuni infection and anti-glycolipid antibodies.

No statistically significant correlations were found between the pattern of disease, AMAN or AIDP, anti-glycolipid antibodies, or C. jejuni antibodies.

Poliomyelitis eradication in the Western Pacific Region.

Polio eradication activities in the Western Pacific Region (WPR) have reduced the transmission of wild poliovirus to one remaining focus of endemic transmission in the Mekong Delta area of South

Aseptic meningitis and encephalitis: the role of PCR in the diagnostic laboratory

A simple and robust PCR strategy to detect a wide range of viruses, bacteria, and parasites, all of which are capable of causing aseptic meningitis and encephalitis, concludes that with appropriate primers, PCR can be systematically and economically applied to test for a range of organisms in a routine diagnostic laboratory.

An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay to characterize dengue infections where dengue and Japanese encephalitis co-circulate.

It is proposed that measurement of dengue and Japanese encephalitis IgM and IgG antibodies upon admission and discharge from hospital care should replace the hemagglutination inhibition assay as the standard d Dengue serologic technique in regions where these 2 viruses co-circulate.

Radiological and neurophysiological changes in Japanese encephalitis.

Changes in MRI and EEG in the acute stage may provide early diagnostic clues in patients with Japanese encephalitis.
