West Nile virus, which causes serious encephalitis in humans and horses, infects neuronal cells and induces cell death. As the neuronal cell death leads to the induction of various inflammatory responses, elucidation of the molecular mechanism of cell death is important for development of a treatment for West Nile encephalitis. In this paper, we investigated the pathology of the neuronal cells infected with West Nile virus and summarized the mechanism of neuronal cell death and their effect on the neuropathogenesis.
