Abstract

Herpes simplex encephalitis type I is responsible for a necrotizing encephalitis seen in patients after the neonatal period (1). Magnetic resonance spin echo (SE) imaging has been found to be more sensitive than CT in detecting the changes that are caused in the temporal lobes and thus facilitating earlier diagnosis (2). In this case of a juvenile with herpes encephalitis MRI of the brain with both SE and fluid attenuated inversion recovery (FLAIR) sequencing was performed. The lesion conspicuity in the gray and white matter was found to be greatest with FLAIR imaging.
