Our experience with West Nile virus infection revealed that 54% of 28 patients had a focal neurological deficit at presentation. A meningitis or encephalitis syndrome was absent in 47% of patients with focal deficits. Details of the variety of deficits, the time to development of deficits, and the associated radiological and laboratory findings are also discussed in the present report.
