We first report sisters presenting with clinically mild encephalitis/encephalopathy with a reversible splenial lesion (MERS)-like features, i.e., mild and reversible neurological manifestations, and MRI finding of a reversible lesion with transiently reduced diffusion in the corpus callosum associated with symmetrical white matter. The distributions of the white matter lesions (more extensive) and Na levels (normal) were different from those reported for sporadic MERS patients (subcortical… CONTINUE READING
