Neurologic Manifestations of Pandemic (H1N1) 2009 Virus Infection

A recently published article in the scientific journal Emerging Infectious Diseases highlighted a case study of a 34 year old male in Thailand who developed neurologic manifestations - namely, progressive quadriplegia - after contracting 2009 H1N1.

Similar to the effects of other viruses, pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus may cause neurologic complications. Associated neurologic symptoms were first reported from Dallas, Texas, USA: 4 children experienced unexplained seizures or had an alteration of consciousness level that was associated with this virus.
