Abstract

West Nile virus has been an increasingly important pathogen in the United States since it was first reported in 1999. Neuroinvasive West Nile virus has been infrequently reported in the pediatric population. We report a case of severe West Nile virus encephalitis with cranial magnetic resonance imaging findings not yet described in children.
