A century ago, von Economo described a central nervous system (CNS) disorder related to an epidemic problem, presented from 1916 to 1927. The principal affection was related to the midbrain and basal nuclei, whereby the patients showed neuropsychiatric manifestations, mainly Parkinsonism. Since then, the influenza virus was associated to these sequelae. Recently, it has been documented that Von Economo´s working hypothesis was that the immune response could affect the neuronal function through antibodies, with lymphocytic infiltration of B and T cells in peri-venous localization.
