Abstract

OBJECTIVE: We sought to identify the initial MR findings of herpes simplex encephalitis in infants and young children. CONCLUSION: MR imaging findings of herpes encephalitis in infants and young children appear to differ from those seen in neonates, older children, and adults. Appreciation of this MR imaging pattern coupled with a strong clinical suspicion of herpes helps to ensure the correct diagnosis is made.
