Neurologic complications of brain tissue-derived rabies vaccine may be chronic or progressive. Lymphocytes and serum from three patients with this form of encephalitis were studied. Two patients had positive lymphoproliferation to purified myelin, two had antibody to white matter, and one had antibody to myelin basic protein. No patient had antibody to proteolipid protein, myelin-associated glycoprotein, or cerebroside.
