This photomicrograph revealed some of the histopathologic changes associated with a Nipah virus infection affecting the central nervous system of a human patient. In this particular case, a centrally located, lightly stained and vacuolated target lesion can be identified. Infection with Nipah virus has been associated with an encephalitis characterized by fever and drowsiness, and more serious central nervous system disease, including coma, seizures, and inability to maintain breathing.
