Abstract

A 2-year-old boy with herpes simplex encephalitis developed diffuse brain lesions involving the white matter of both cerebral hemispheres. These lesions in the white matter were clearly observed on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) with the T2-weighted sequence, and were found to have spontaneously disappeared on subsequent MRI performed 7 weeks later. Brain lesions associated with herpes simplex encephalitis in the literature are reviewed and the pathogenesis in the present case is discussed.
