Rotavirus RNA was detected in the blood and cerebrospinal fluid from eight Japanese children with convulsions and gastroenteritis in the acute stage by means of the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. This may suggest that rotavirus invades the central nervous system through blood vessels.
