In brief: LCM

Often transmitted from pet rodents (hamsters, gerbils, etc.
, and from house mice), this virus, as befits its name, produces an aseptic viral meningitis. This most often occurs in the autumn, with the onset of cold weather causing rodents to seek warmer environments. Recovery is usually fairly rapid and complete with few neurologic sequelae.
