Acute viral encephalitis is known to be caused by a wide range of viruses including enteroviruses. Here, we describe a case of 2-year-old patient of acute encephalitis syndrome from Japanese encephalitis endemic area, which was provisionally diagnosed as JE viral encephalitis but subsequently worked up for enterovirus due to atypical clinical presentation such as moderate grade fever, hypotonia, and hepatosplenomegaly along with ECG findings suggestive of myocarditis, which was successfully treated with intravenous immunoglobulins.
