Abstract

Seventy-four of the 2651 patients (2.8%) with influenza aged <18 years had signs or symptoms of central nervous system dysfunction presenting to the hospital. None had oseltamivir exposure before the onset of central nervous system dysfunction. Seventeen children received oseltamivir therapy after admission and no significant difference between administration of oseltamivir and outcome was observed (P = 0.1512 by Fisher exact test).
