Abstract

There is growing evidence, that Borna Disease virus (BDV) or a variant may cause neuropsychiatric disorders in humans. The presence of specific BDV serum antibodies indicates an earlier contact with BDV Earlier MRI results showing a raised prevalence of white matter lesions in BDV-seropositive psychiatric patients, possibly indicating encephaliticlesions, are not confirmed in this extended study, however in BDV-seropositive psychiatric patients the occurrence of cerebral atrophy seems to be more frequent, a finding compatible with hydrocephalus e vacuofound in animals after BDV-encephalitis. Because encephalitic lesionsin BD are predominantly found in the gray matter of the brain, which is hardly visualized by MRI, the failure to detect lesions in BDV-seropositive patients could be due to methodological problems.
