Neuroradiology. 1991;33(2):178-80. doi: 10.1007/BF00588264.


Serial MRI was performed on a 15 year old girl with Subacute Sclerosing Pan-encephalitis (SSPE]. After a period of remission she entered a phase of progressive deterioration. A repeat MRI showed significant resolution of the previous abnormalities. Her pathology and MRI scans are discussed.
