Abstract;We reported a 13-years-old boy with psychosis following influenza-like symptoms. He was admitted to our hospital complaining of anxiety and irritability. Though he was suspected to have psychosis on admission, he was diagnosed to suffer from psychosis due to organic disorders, from the both findings of moderate slow basic rhythm on EEG and the regional decreased blood flows in 99mTc-ECD SPECT. His delirium was considered to be caused by influenza-associated encephalopathy on the basis of the elevated influenza-virus A anti-body titer. The children with psychosis following influenza-like symptoms should be carefully examined by the both EEG and SPECT. (author abst.)
