Abstract: Clinical involvement of the central nervous system (CNS) is an unusual manifestation of human viral infection. The spectrum of brain involvement and the outcome of the disease are dependent on the specific pathogen, the immunologic state of the host, and environmental factors. Most human viruses can cause serious neurological disease of the central nervous system, either during primary infection or in the course of virus reactivation from latently infected tissue. DNA viruses cause diseases of the CNS, which can be classified into three groups: acute infections, acute post-exposure syndromes and chronic diseases. This article presents current knowledge about epidemiology and clinical presentation of DNA virus infections in the central nervous system.
