VALDIVIA-TAPIA, María del Carmen  and  CARREAZO, Nilton Yhuri. Non-fatal case of H1N1 influenza encephalopathy in a pediatric patient. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.3, pp.585-587. ISSN 1726-4634.

A 2-year-old girl presented with fever, catarrhal symptoms, and focal right hemispheric seizures that persisted and led to signs of intracranial hypertension. An influenza A H1N1 infection was confirmed via polymerase chain reaction analysis of a nasopharyngeal swab. The patient, who was not treated with oseltamavir, has responded favorably to supportive measures.
