The diagnosis was made by clinical symptoms, neurologic exam, serologic test, brain CT, brain MRI and brainstem biopsy.

Stereotaxic brainstem biopsy was done for differenciate from brainstem glioma at 24th hospital day. Patient was treated with acyclovir and improved in association with neurologic sequallae at 3 months later. Brief review of literatures was made.
