Abstract

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) remains a problem in areas of the world where measles virus is prevalent because of a lack of commitment to universal vaccination. We recently studied 89 cases compatible with a clinical diagnosis of SSPE and tested for antibody in serum or cerebrospinal fluid for measles virus. Eleven cases were confirmed to be SSPE on the basis of strongly supportive laboratory data.
