Abstract

Fever, behavioral changes, and new-onset seizures in a 73-year-old man with a history monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance (MGUS) was traced to a herpes simplex virus infection. Although herpes encephalitis has not yet been reported in a patient with MGUS, it has been reported in persons with multiple myeloma and plasmacytoma. Immune system abnormalities associated with oncological conditions and MGUS may result in failure to suppress latent herpes virus infection.
