Figure 2

Phylogenetic relationships of subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE) strains. The neighbor-joining unrooted tree was plotted with Treeview 1.5.2. Reference measles virus strains are described (2). Wild-type (genotype C1 in 1991 and D6 in 1998) as well as post-vaccinal cases (genotype A) from the last two Argentine outbreaks were included (GenBank accession no. AF263841, 43, 44, 46, 52) (7). SSPE strains are highlighted in bold type (GenBank accession no. AY253332–37)
