Interesting story. This year, Florida mandated continuing education requirements for license renewal that had to include the fact that HSV1 encephalitis can present as behavioral symptoms only -- depression, psychoses, etc. which were are often misdiagnosed, and thus opportunities for antiviral treatment were missed.
So HSV and the brain are tightly intertwined at times.
