Abstract

Cranial MR imaging was performed in three patients in whom herpes simplex encephalitis was subsequently proved. In all cases, the postcontrast T1- weighted MR images obtained with magnetization transfer saturation showed greater central nervous system involvement than was apparent on the conventional MR images. Specifically, the postcontrast magnetization transfer images were superior at delineating generalized meningeal enhancement as well as focal areas of brain involvement not seen on noncontrast T2-weighted images or conventional postcontrast T1-weighted images.
