Post-infectious encephalopathy simulating functional psychosis.

N Z Med J. 1977 Mar 9;85(583):180-1.


Three cases of post-infectious encephalopathy are presented in which behaviour changes occurred in the absence of neurological abnormality during convalescence from an influenza-like illness. The symptoms included aggresive behaviour, sleep reversal, sexual disinbition and a catatonic schizophrenia-like state. The prognosis was good.
