Abstract

Human parechovirus infections usually cause mild symptoms in children. Although their contribution to severe disease in young children—such as neonatal sepsis and meningoencephalitis—is increasingly recognized, data on long-term consequences are scarce. Here we present the case of a 5-year-old boy with severe long-term neurodevelopmental sequelae after human parechovirus-3 meningitis.
