Abstract

Bickerstaff's Brainstem encephalitis is a very rare localized central nervous system inflammatory demyelinating disorder. This has not been reported in children in India before. We here describe a 12 year old girl with Bickerstaff's brainstem encephalitis who had multiple cranial nerve palsies. The etiologies, clinical course and therapeutic interventions of this rare condition are briefly reviewed.
