Brief Summary:
Our study involved 142 children with EV71 CNS infections that included 61 (43%) with viral meningitis, 53 (37%) with severe CNS involvement including encephalitis, polio-like syndrome and encephalomyelitis, and 28 (20%) with cardiopulmonary failure after CNS involvement. These children were subjected to physical and neurological examinations 2.85 (range 1.0-7.39) years after disease onset. Those below the age of 6 years took the Denver developmental screening test, while those 4 years and over took the intelligence quotient (IQ) test.
