The section on symptoms sounds dubious (was taken from House MD, which is not an accurate source of medical facts), not sure how it could be changed though. SSPE is really a rare disease. Exdisq13 20:56, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Apparent contradiction[edit]

I don't see how "it is universally fatal in all occurrences" and "there is a 5% remission rate" can both be true. Eyu100(t|fr|Version 1.0 Editorial Team) 07:47, 2 April 2012 (UTC)

Fatal?[edit]

The article is not clear on whether SSPE is universally fatal.--Solomonfromfinland (talk) 13:44, 5 May 2013 (UTC)
