Abstract

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a progressive fatal central nervous system (CNS) disease affecting children and young adults. Since first described by Dawson in 1933 (1) much knowledge regarding its etiology and pathogenesis, with relation to measles virus, has accumulated, yet there is still no effective treatment.
