Answer

Wasay et al, using EEG and MRI to study patients, found that of the 9 patients who were examined with EEG, all 9 had seizures or other abnormalities, and 1 had nonconvulsive status epilepticus. The MRI findings in 2 of the 9 patients showed edema. One of the 9 patients had HIV coinfection. [56]
