Zika Virus Associated with Meningoencephalitis
MetadataShow full item record
Zika virus (ZIKV) is currently spreading widely, while its clinical spectrum remains a matter of investigation. Evidence of a relationship between ZIKV infection and cerebral birth abnormalities is growing. An increased incidence of some peripheral nervous syndromes among adults was reported during outbreaks in French Polynesia and Brazil, but no formal link with ZIKV infection was shown. We describe a case of central nervous system infection with ZIKV that was associated with meningoencephalitis in an adult.
