Neurologic complications of influenza

Plenty of things being published about influenza, of course - use our influenza webpages to link to a PubMed search that will update you - but this caught my eye:

Newland JG et al. Neurologic complications in children hospitalized with influenza: characteristics, incidence, and risk factors. Journal of Pediatrics 2007; 150(3): 306-10.

The authors reviewed all children hospitalized in the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia with influenza, looking for neurologic complications, which included encephalopathy and seizures.
