The author is interested in the relationship between encephalitis and influenza epidemics in 1918. "The etiologic relationship of this disease [i.e. encephalitis] to influenza rests on the above described coincidence of the epidemics. It is not common for the individual patient to have had a clinically distinct influenza. The encephalitis may itself be a cerebral form of influenza, or it may be caused by a separate virus which in order to become active must have been in contact at one time or other with that of influenza." Much of the article also contains laboratory-based information.
