Herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) is responsible for about 10 percent of all encephalitis cases, with a frequency of about 2 cases per million persons per year. Meningoencephalitis is characterized by the following features: (1) inflammatory cells in the meninges; (2) perivascular infiltrates with inflammatory cells; (3) necrosis of brain parenchyma, with all cellular elements affected, especially in the periventricular region, and often associated with calcification; (4) reactive microglial and astroglial proliferation; and (5) the occurrence of enlarged cells (neuronal and.

Enteroviruses are a group of viruses that are transmitted from person to person via direct contact with the virus.

They can cause a variety of illnesses from mild (febrile illness) to more serious illnesses (encephalitis). Each year, a billion or more people (more often infants and children) worldwide are affected by enteroviruses.
