Abstract

Powassan virus (POWV) is a rare tick-borne agent of encephalitis in North America. Historically, confi rmed cases occurred mainly in the northeastern United States. Since 2008, confi rmed cases in Minnesota and Wisconsin have increased. We report a fatal case of POWV encephalitis in Minnesota. POWV infection should be suspected in tickexposed patients with viral encephalitis.
