The typical clinical presentation of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) includes behavioral and intellectual changes followed by myoclonia. However, there are a considerable number of SSPE cases which present with distinct clinical features that can lead to a diagnostic difficulty. In this report, we summarize the clinical features of patients with SSPE who have uncommon presentations or features of the disease or coexisting medical conditions which may lead to diagnostic difficulties.
