Özet

Influenza virus is associated with a variety of neurological complications, of which the most commonly encountered are seizures and encephalopathy. Acute encephalitis and postinfectious encephalopathy have been reported infrequently in association with influenza A and B virus infections. We describe two previously healthy adults who presented with encephalopathy with a virologically documented influenza B infection.
