INTRODUCTION: Subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) is a rare, slow, persistent viral infection caused by defective measles virus. It typically occurs in children 6-8 years after primary measles infection and is characterized by progressive neurologic decline resulting in death within 1-3 years. We present a case of a pregnant woman with rapidly progressive SSPE.
