Abstract

Subacute Sclerosing Panencephalitis is a chronic, persistent viral infection of the central nervous system caused by the wild-type measles virus. The disease presents a few years after the primary measles infection with behavioral changes, usually followed by myoclonus, akinesia, mutism, vegetative state, and death.
