Abstract

We present 3 cases of influenza A 2009 H1N1 encephalitis occurring in adults, corroborated by viral genome detection in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and evidence of meningeal inflammation on brain histopathology. This paper emphasizes the possibility of viral detection in CSF and stresses the lack of an effective treatment for neurological manifestations of influenza.
