Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis : CT and MR imaging in a rapidly progressive case

Neurol India. 1999 Dec;47(4):304-7.


We report the findings on CT and MR imaging in a patient with rapidly progressive subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), which correlated with the clinical progression of the disease. In view of the rapid neurological deterioration and CSF pleocytosis, a brain biopsy was done and this confirmed the diagnosis.
