Rotavirus-associated seizures and reversible corpus callosum lesion

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Rotavirus is a non-enveloped double-stranded RNA virus that causes severe gastroenteritis in children, but complications are rarely reported. Some reports have shown that rotavirus can induce diverse complications of the central nervous system, such as seizures, encephalopathy with a reversible splenial lesion, encephalitis, cerebral white matter abnormalities, and cerebellitis. Here, we present a 2-year-old patient with seizures, who had an isolated splenial lesion in the corpus callosum on neuroimaging, and the rotavirus antigen detected in faeces.

Kai kurie atveju aprasymai rodo, kad rotavirusas gali sukelti ivairias centrines nervu sistemos komplikacijas, tokias kaip traukuliai, encefalopatija su trumpalaikiu didziosios smegenu jungties pazeidimu, encefalitas, smegenu baltosios medziagos anomalijos ir cerebelitas. Cia pristatome dveju metu pacienta su traukuliais, kuriam laikinas didziosios smegenu jungties pazeidimas buvo nustatytas neurovaizdinimo metu, o rotaviruso antigenas aptiktas ismatose.Raktazodziai: rotavirusas, vaiku traukuliai, rotaviruso komplikacijos.
