The process is characterized, other than by the appearances of proliferation, by the severe circulatory disruptions, particularly by the tendency for the destructive variations of the histocytes of the brain and the Hortega cells, as well as the nerve cells. The region most severely affected is the central brain, particularly the Sommering Black substance, putamen, thalamus, hypothalamus region and, in some cases, the pons and medulla. The process is evident in the cortex also, and in the subcortex. The above syndrome, constituted by microscopy, explains the clinical symptoms which are observed during the severe course of infection.
