MRI in H1N1 Encephalitis
Novel influenza A (H1N1) virus has been largely associated with respiratory complications. The exact frequency of neurological complications is not known, but are more common in children. There are very few reports of MRI findings in H1N1 encephalitis and none from India. The authors report MRI findings in an infant with H1N1 encephalitis. The diagnosis was made based on history, viral serological tests and imaging findings.
