Neurological involvement, mostly in the form of meningoencephalitis or encephalitis, represents the leading cause of death in patients with infectious mononucleosis (EF). Central nervous system involvement usually occurs after the first 1 to 3 weeks of disease, although patients presenting with neurological signs and symptoms have been rarely reported. In this case presentation, our aim was to examine the association between acute Ebstein barr virus (EBV) infection and refractory myoclonic convulsions in a patient presenting with myodonic status.
