Abstract

Abstract.

Zika virus (ZIKV) has a wide clinical spectrum of associated neurologic disease including microcephaly and Guillain–Barre syndrome but, despite its known neurotropism, ZIKV meningoencephalitis and myelitis have been rare complications. We describe a case of ZIKV meningoencephalitis and probable myelitis and its associated magnetic resonance imaging findings that rapidly resolved during recovery in a previously healthy adult.
