    ABSTRACT: An unusual case of panencephalitis in a 4-year-old Japanese boy, with onset at three months after measles infection and rapid progression to a comatose state in approximately one month, is described. A rapid rise in serum measles antibody titre after the onset of the symptoms, and the appearance of various abnormal antibodies in the serum, were noted. Pathologically, the brain showed sclerosing polio- and leucoencephalitis with diffuse gliosis and sporadic intranuclear inclusions. The process is suggested to be intermediate or transitional between acute measles encephalitis and SSPE.

    ABSTRACT: We present the unique case of a 2-year-old girl with congenital athyreosis who acquired primary measles virus infection at the age of 18 months, coincidentally with an Epstein-Barr virus infection. First neurologic symptoms of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis appeared 5 months later, and the girl died within 6 months after a rapid progressive illness. Factors possibly predisposing to this extraordinary disease course-primary measles virus infection at an early age and lack of evidence for immunodeficiency-are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: This report describes an eleven-year-old boy with atypical features of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), a rare complication of measles. He had only visual symptoms for 2 months followed by rapid neurological worsening to a vegetative state in 10 days. A diagnosis of SSPE was made based on the history of measles, characteristic ocular findings, compatible magnetic resonance imaging and electroencephalographic changes, and elevated ratio of cerebrospinal fluid to serum anti-measles antibody titers.
