A case of delayed acute measles encephalitis in an immunosuppressed child is reported. Detailed immunological studies have shown defective humoral immunity (defective IgA, IgG2 and IgG3) and decreased natural killer activity. Neuroradiological examination by magnetic resonance imaging revealed several high signal lesions on T2-weighted images in the gray matter without clinical or pathological correlation. The implications of these findings are discussed.
