Hand-foot-mouth disease (HFMD) is characterized by distinctive skin lesions on the hand, foot, and mouth and in general, recovery occurs within one week. However, in cases of HFMD by enterovirus 71 (EV71) infection, the development of neurologic complications such as brainstem encephalitis, acute flaccid paralysis, and aseptic meningitis has been common. Moreover, it has been reported that some patients with neuologic complications have expired in severe cases.
