Abstract

Summary

The titres of antibodies against three viruses, measles, mumps and herpes simplex, were determined in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and in the serum of 68 patients with various forms of meningitis and encephalitis, as well as in 41 control patients without neurological diseases.

No antibody was detected in CSF from control patients, but 48 per cent. of CSF from patients with neurological involvement had detectable antibody.

The ratio of CSF/serum antibody was highest in subacute sclerosing panencephalitis and bacterial meningitis.
