Abstract

 

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is chronic progressive encephalitis of childhood and young adoloscent due to persistent measles virus infection. This case illustrates a 14 year old girl presented with short history of intellectual decline, abnormal behavior, myoclonus and altered consciousness with suggestive neuroimaging mimicking metachromatic leucodystrophy. Subsequently she was diagnosed to be a case of Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) on the basis of Electroencephalography (EEG) and Cerebrospinal fluid(CSF) measles antibody titer.
