160 Possible Causes for Varicella-Zoster Virus Encephalitis

  • Varicella

    KEYWORDS: Brainstem encephalitis; Cerebellitis; Ramsay Hunt syndrome; Varicella zoster virus; Zoster oticus[] Chickenpox is caused by varicella zoster virus (VZV/HHV-3), which is one of the eight human herpes viruses.[] Reactivation of the same herpes virus is responsible for shingles (zoster).[]

  • Encephalitis

    CSF IgG and IgM titers may be more sensitive than PCR for varicella-zoster virus encephalitis.[] Specific, evidence-based, antiviral therapy, acyclovir, is available for herpes encephalitis (level A) and may also be effective for varicella-zoster virus encephalitis.[] Until HSV encephalitis and varicella-zoster virus encephalitis are excluded, promptly treat with acyclovir and continue, usually for 14 days or until infection with these[]

  • Varicella-Zoster Virus Encephalitis

    Varicella zoster virus (VZV) encephalitis can be due to either an immune reaction to primary infection or reactivation of latent infection in cranial nerve or dorsal root[] Abstract We present two cases of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who developed Varicella-Zoster Virus (VZV) encephalitis after completion of standard “3 7” induction remission[] Keywords: Varicella; Encephalitis; Tumor; Metastatic; PCR Abbreviations VZV: Varicella Zoster Virus; HSV: Herpes Simplex Virus; CSF: Cerebral Spinal Fluid; CMV: Cytomegalo[]
