There was a 50-fold increase in neutralization titre against Powassan virus, but the virus could not be isolated. Other virological investigations were negative.The patient survived and early physiotherapy and speech re-education could be instituted. Nine months after onset of illness the patient showed moderate sequelae, despite a very severe illness.
