Abstract

This is the first study of neurologic complications associated with H1N1 influenza infection in adults. Severe brain injury can occur by 2 distinct mechanisms: a fulminant autoimmune demyelinating insult (AHL) and hypoxic brain injury. Clinicians should be aware of these potential complications so that appropriate imaging and treatment can be considered.
