Abstract

Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a rare progressive neurologic disorder. A 9-year-old boy was seen who had progressive neurocognitive decline, myoclonic jerking of the extremities, and an abnormal result of an electroencephalogram (EEG). Ophthalmoscopic examination revealed multifocal subretinal lesions. The diagnosis of SSPE was made on the basis of the clinical examination and elevated serum and spinal fluid measles titer. We describe subretinal lesions in a patient with SSPE.
