VALENZUELA, José Ignacio et al. Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis in adults Association with infection by hepatitis A virus. Acta Med Colomb [online]. 2014, vol.39, n.1, pp.64-68. ISSN 0120-2448.

Abstract Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is a monophasic demyelinating disease that usually follows an infection or vaccination, mainly by the measles virus and occurring primarily in children and young adults. His association with infection by hepatitis A virus is rare, and is poorly documented. The case of a 53 years old female patient with ADEM and infection by hepatitis A is presented. The inclusion of hepatitis A within the causal screening of adult patients with ADEM is highlighted. (Acta Med Colomb 2014; 39: 64-68).

Keywords : acute disseminated encephalomyelitis; hepatitis A; Guilläin-Barre syndrome.
