Write-up: Post vax, the pt presented with progressive confusion, crying spells, and social withdrawal. Three months after symptom onset, he developed intermittent dystonic posturing of the left arm and leg. Initial neurological exam was significant for dysarthria and myoclonus of the left arm and leg. During the fourth month of illness, the pt developed hyperreflexia, and extensor plantar responses. By the fifth month, the myoclonus ceased. He became unresponsive, mute, and displayed intermittent hyperreflexia and tachycardia suggesting autonomic dysfunction. He expired six months after the onset of symptoms. An autopsy was refused. The cause of death was subacute sclerosing panencephalitis. Information about this case is described in an unpublished manuscript entitled "Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis in US born adult".
