Arch Neurol. 1983;40(9):596-597. doi:10.1001/archneur.1983.04050080096025

• Acute encephalitis associated with an impressive skin rash developed in an otherwise healthy man. Brain biopsy findings were not diagnostic, but serologic data confirmed the diagnosis of acute toxoplasmosis. The patient improved after antimicrobial therapy with pyrimethamine and sulfadiazine, but he was left with neurologic deficits.
