Dear Editor, Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) is an immune-mediated infl ammatory disorder of the central nervous system. It has a monophasic course which occurs after viral infection or vaccination.1,2Acute haemorrhagic leucoencephalitis (AHLE) is considered to be a hyperacute form of ADEM which is fulminant and is frequently fatal.3 There are only a few cases of biopsy-proven AHLE in the current literature. This case emphasises the importance of early recognition by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for institution of medical therapy.
