Abstract

Acute haemorrhagic leukoencephalitis was first described as a pathological entity by Hurst in 1941. It is a rare acute inflammatory myelinopathy of the CNS characterised by progressive loss of consciousness leading to coma accompanied by focal neurological dysfunction. It is now generally accepted that acute haemorrhagic leukoencephalitis is the severe end of the range of acute disseminated encephalomyelitis.
