What is Encephalitis?

Encephalitis is a neurological disorder that is caused by inflammation of the brain. It can occur after an infection or as the result of another autoimmune or genetic condition. Symptoms of encephalitis can include headaches, seizures, confusion and changes in behavior, language, vision and movement abilities.  Early diagnosis and treatment are important to reduce the complications associated with this condition.

Symptoms and Challenges Associated with Encephalitis

Symptoms of encephalitis can vary depending on the severity of the condition and may range from mild headaches to seizures, confusion and changes in behavior. Other cognitive changes, such as difficulty concentrating or understanding language, can also occur. In addition to symptomatic challenges, those living with encephalitis may also experience physical difficulties, fatigue and emotional issues related to their diagnosis. It’s important for individuals and their families to receive appropriate support and care through their treatment process.
