Neuroinfectious Diseases focuses on facilitating research to understand the pathophysiology, to develop new diagnostic techniques and modes of treatment, to establish guidelines for management, and to improve awareness by disseminating information on emerging or remerging infections.
*For the submission of a Case Report please, send the manuscript draft to firstname.lastname@example.org for pre-evaluation. Any Case Reports submitted without a previous enquiry might experience delays, as they will be sent for assessment prior to peer review.Read More
Infections of the nervous system pose multiple challenges to the treating physician. They are often hard to diagnose, new infections are constantly emerging, and proper treatment requires early recognition. The morbidity and mortality of undiagnosed or underdiagnosed infections is high. Hence, the mission of Neuroinfectious Diseases is to facilitate research to understand the pathophysiology, to develop new diagnostic techniques and modes of treatment, to establish guidelines for management, and to improve awareness by disseminating information on emerging or remerging infections. Thus, we will welcome papers on epidemiology, clinical manifestations, basic research including disease pathophysiology, diagnostic algorithms, molecular techniques for identifying causative organisms, new therapeutic targets and approaches for management, early and late phase clinical trials. We will also accept illustrative case reports and case series. Expert opinion papers and authoritative reviews will also be considered. We will cover all micro- and macro-organisms that may invade the nervous system, including endogenous agents such as prions, transposable and retroviral elements. Neurological syndromes that may be triggered by infectious agents will also be considered which include diseases at the cross roads of immunology and infections.
