Abstract

The acute disseminated encephalomyelitis ADEM is a rare form of encephalitis. We report a case after herpes infection. The diagnosis was based on the existence of post-infectious and neurological signs and demyelinating reaching the white matter in the magnetic resonance imaging MRI. The outcome was favourable after treatment with high-dose steroids.
