Abstract

We report a case of meningoencephalitis caused by Toscana virus (TOSV) with central facial paralysis lasting over two days acquired in south-eastern France. The patient was not febrile either before or during the course of the disease. The diagnosis was established by both real-time RT-PCR and virus isolation with complete genome sequencing. This case emphasises the need to consider TOSV in non-febrile neurological syndromes in people living in or having travelled to the Mediterranean area.
