Özet

Background: Herpes simplex virus encephalitis (HSE) is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Neurologic sequelae are common even after early initiation of acyclovir treatment. The host immune response during HSE can also lead to brain damage. There are an increasing number of reports favoring steroid use in HSE.
