    Infectious diseases of the central nervous system (CNS) are well known to everyone. Infections with parasites ( e.g. hydatid disease of the brain, malaria), bacteria (e.g. meningococcus) and viruses ( e.g. herpes virus encephalitis, poliomyelitis) are common knowledge, but a peculiar infectious agent, prion protein, is generally known only in relation to bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE or “mad cow disease”). While infections of humans by prion proteins are uncommon, they are of intense interest, with two Nobel prizes awarded for research in this area.
