Abstract

A healthy 7-year-old girl developed emotional incontinence and amnesia associated with mumps encephalitis. Her neurologic findings markedly improved after treatment of daily injection of thyrotropin-releasing hormone tartrate without any adverse effects. Although magnetic resonance imaging revealed no abnormal findings, the findings of 99mTc-hexamethylpropyleneamine oxime single photon emission computed tomography demonstrated abnormality of left temporooccipital area thought to be responsible for her symptoms.
