Lymphocyte subpopulations in peripheral blood (PB) and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) from 26 children affected with subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) and from 13 controls with various neurological diseases without any immunological implication were examined for surface markers. SSPE patients were found to have significantly lower %s of E-rosette forming cells (RFC) (T lymphocytes) and of EA-RFC (TG lymphocytes, suppressor T cells) in both CSF and PB. No difference was found in EAC-RFC (B lymphocytes) either in CSF or PB. The low EA-RFC values can be explained by genetic factors, immune complexes or virus infection, and they could account for the hypersynthesis of oligoclonal immunoglobulins in the central nervous system.
