ABSTRACT

We review here syndromes caused by viruses belonging to Paramyxoviridae family: mumps causing meningoencephalitis and, rarely, ADEM (acute disseminated encephalomyelitis) and measles. Neurological sequelae in the cause of measles comprise acute disseminated measles encephalitis (ADAM), measles inclusion-body encephalitis (MIBE), subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) and post-infectious encephalitis (PIE). The sequence of those encephalitides following measles infection is as follows: acute measles encephalitis comes first, follows by MIBE (1-9 months) and SSPE (3-15 years). The measles encephalitis in the course of HIV infection is a separate phenomenon.
