Abstract

A pregnant 25-year-old woman at 32 weeks" gestation was admitted to an emergency unit after her husband had found her drowsy and with her tongue bitten. The day before admission, the patient had developed a fever of 39 degrees C, was suffering from headaches, was nauseated and had vomited. On admission, she had anterograde and retrograde amnesia, but no somatic neurological deficits were detected.
