Abstract

The authors describe three cases of meningoencephalitis with herpes virus observed in a six-month period. The clinical manifestations were those of an expanding intracranial mass, mostly in the temporal and/or fronto-orbital region, with convulsions resisting conventional treatment, and rapid evolution into coma. ECG tracings revealed definite evidence of typical repetitive activity with short period intervals and well-localized expression. In addition to these signs, all patients yielded a xanthochromic cerebrospinal fluid containing red blood cells.
