病毒性脑炎自主神经功能不稳肌张力不全Viral Encephalitis; Autonomic Instability; Dystonia


Objective: To explore the clinical features and therapeutic strategy of Paroxysmal autonomic instability with dystonia (PAID) induced by viral encephalitis. Methods:The clinical data of one child with PAID induced by viral encephalitis diagnosed in our hospital was analyzed retrospectively. Results: The child presented with intermittent agitation, fever,diaphoresis, tachycardia,tachypnea, hypertension, extensor posturing and seizures.Through the treatment of combined drugs, the child was gradually improved and discharged.After a follow-up of one and a half years, themuscular tension of limbs returned to normal and there were not serious neurologic sequelae. Conclusion: The PAID induced by viral encephalitis is rare. Early recognition is of paramount importance to start treatment in an early stage and various drugs should be combined to alleviate PAID.
