Abstract

The tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) virus gives rise to epidemic encephalitis. Mild forms usually manifest as influenza-like episodes or are clinicallysilent. MRI is usually normal in TEE. We describe severe TEE in a patient who presented with fever and altered mental status after a tick bite and a specific antibody response to TEE. MRI revealed pronounced signal abnormalities in the basal ganglia and thalamus, without contrast enhancement. Thesefindings coincide well with neuropathological studies of severe nerve celldegeneration with inflammatory cell infiltrates, neuronophagia and reactive astrocytosis in the deep grey matter. We review the literature and discuss the relevant differential diagnosis.
