Abstract: Alphaherpesvirus infections in the central nervous system (CNS) are rare but severe, and many patients show remaining neurological sequelae. While antiviral treatment has reduced the mortality, morbidity has not been diminished to the same degree, and the immune system activation might contribute to the pathogenesis. Clinical symptoms have often been in focus in previous studies of such infections, while the entry and spread of viral agents is less thoroughly elucidated. Therefore, the aim of th... more
