Abstract
Four cases of herpes encephalitis treated with dexamethasone and cytarabine. Cases were all verified by brain biopsy and immunofluorescent techniques. Attention is called to the need for early diagnosis, but the difficulty of deciding when to perform brain biopsy is discussed. Early treatment with effective drugs is necessary to prevent permanent brain damage.
