Write-up: In 4/90, 11 days post vax, the pt experienced recurrent focal seizures.

In 10/89, therapy with zidovudine was initiated. The pt had no symptoms related to HIV infection or zidovudine therapy. Although he had received the measles vaccine in 1973 at the age of 3 and a d dose of MMR in 1976 at the age of 7, the pt was admitted to the hospital for three days in 2/90 with uncomplicated measles. Tachypnea and respiratory distress responded promptly to therapy with oxygen and aerosolized ribavirin. The pt responded well until two months later, when he presented after two days of recurrent right arm twitches without fever. Physical exam revealed only continuous fine twitches of th right arm. CSF analysis and computed tomography of the head gave normal results, electroencephalography, however, showed right frontal slowing with spike discharges centrally, persisted despite therapeutic anticonvulsant concentrations in serum. the pt was admitted 11 days after the onset of seizures for further diagnostic evaluation. At the time of admission, he was conscious and afebrile. He had right-arm and right-leg twitching but was able to walk. His mental status and the results of motor and sensory examination were normal. Although the latter condition responded to the fluid restriction, the pt developed slurred speech and gradually became unresponsive requiring endotracheal intubation. A 10 day course of IV therapy was given. The pt remained comatose, experiencing continuous focal seizures that could not be controlled with anticonvulsant agents. Neurological and electroencepahlographic exam on day 24 of hospitalization indicated brain death. Mechanical ventilation was discontinued on day 30. The cause of death was subacute measles encephalitis.

Write-up: In 4/90, 11 days post vax, the pt experienced recurrent focal seizures. At the time his HIV infection was diagnosed in 10/85, blood analysis consistently revealed leukopenia, mild thrombocytopenia and hemoglobin concentrations of 11.2 to 13.6, lymphocyte counts were around 200-300, CD4 to CD8 ratios of 0.2-0.47. In 10/89, therapy with zidovudine was initiated. The pt had no symptoms related to HIV infection or zidovudine therapy. Although he had received the measles vaccine in 1973 at the age of 3 and a dose of MMR in 1976 at the age of 7, the pt was admitted to the hospital for three days in 2/90 with uncomplicated measles. Tachypnea and respiratory distress responded promptly to therapy with oxygen and aerosolized ribavirin. The pt responded well until two months later, when he presented after two days of recurrent right arm twitches without fever. Physical exam revealed only continuous fine twitches of th right arm. CSF analysis and computed tomography of the head gave normal results, electroencephalography, however, showed right frontal slowing with spike discharges centrally, persisted despite therapeutic anticonvulsant concentrations in serum. the pt was admitted 11 days after the onset of seizures for further diagnostic evaluation. At the time of admission, he was conscious and afebrile. He had right-arm and right-leg twitching but was able to walk. His mental status and the results of motor and sensory examination were normal. Although the latter condition responded to the fluid restriction, the pt developed slurred speech and gradually became unresponsive requiring endotracheal intubation. A 10 day course of IV therapy was given. The pt remained comatose, experiencing continuous focal seizures that could not be controlled with anticonvulsant agents. Neurological and electroencepahlographic exam on day 24 of hospitalization indicated brain death. Mechanical ventilation was discontinued on day 30. The cause of death was subacute measles encephalitis.
