Abstract

SA, Priscilla Karen de Oliveira et al. Chikungunya virus infection with severe neurologic manifestations: report of four fatal cases. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2017, vol.50, n.2, pp.265-268. ISSN 1678-9849.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0037-8682-0375-2016.

Here, we present four patients with confirmed Chikungunya virus infection showing atypical neurologic manifestations and death. This case series includes patients ranging in age from five to 92 years, with or without comorbidities. This report is important, as very few cases in the literature reporting death due to atypical Chikungunya virus infection are available.

Keywords : Chikungunya fever; Neurologic manifestations; Death.
