Abstract

Relapse of herpes simplex virus (HSV) encephalitis rarely occurs after acyclovir treatment. We experienced a case of relapsing HSV encephalitis in the contralateral temporal lobe, resulting in Kluver-Bucy syndrome, after a full dose acyclovir treatment. Sudden behavioral and emotional changes after HSV encephalitis treatment suggest relapsing HSV encephalitis as well as temporal lobe epilepsy.
