Second, the data are used to associate trends in enteroviral diseases with circulating serotypes such as viral meningitis--associated hospitalizations during periods of high activity of echoviruses 9 and 30 and lower numbers of these cases for years when group B coxsackieviruses predominate (CDC, unpublished data, 1988-1999).
In contrast to JC polyomavirus-associated progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy, enteroviral encephalitis can be successfully treated by early administration of IVIG, which might contain neutralizing antibodies, albeit in variable amounts (8).
