MedlinePlus:33 Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain. usually the cause is a viral infection, but bacteria can also cause it. it can be mild or severe. most cases are mild. you may have flu-like symptoms. with a mild case, you may just need rest, plenty of fluids, and a pain reliever. severe cases need immediate treatment. symptoms of severe cases include severe headache sudden fever drowsiness vomiting confusion seizures in babies, additional symptoms may include constant crying, poor feeding, body stiffness, and bulging in the soft spots of the skull. severe cases may require a stay in the hospital. treatments include oral and intravenous medicines to reduce inflammation and treat infection. patients with breathing difficulties may need artificial respiration. some people may need physical, speech, and occupational therapy once the illness is under control. nih: national institute of neurological disorders and stroke

MalaCards based summary: Encephalitis is related to limbic encephalitis and tick-borne encephalitis. An important gene associated with Encephalitis is UNC93B1 (unc-93 homolog B1 (C. elegans)), and among its related pathways are Trafficking and processing of endosomal TLR and OX40 Pathway. The compounds polyinosinic-polycytidylic acid and il-12 have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, t cells and testes, and related mouse phenotypes are renal/urinary system and digestive/alimentary.

Disease Ontology:8 Encephalitis is a nervous system infectious disease characterized as an acute inflammation of the brain. the usual cause is a viral infection, but bacteria can also cause it. cases can range from mild to severe. for mild cases, you could have flu-like symptoms. serious cases can cause severe headache, sudden fever, drowsiness, vomiting, confusion and seizures.

NINDS:43 Meningitis and encephalitis are inflammatory diseases of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord and are caused by bacterial or viral infections. Viral meningitis is sometimes called aseptic meningitis to indicate it is not the result of bacterial infection and cannot be treated with antibiotics. Symptoms of encephalitis include sudden fever, headache, vomiting, heightened sensitivity to light, stiff neck and back, confusion and impaired judgment, drowsiness, weak muscles, a clumsy and unsteady gait, and irritability. Symptoms that might require emergency treatment include loss of consciousness, seizures, muscle weakness, or sudden severe dementia.
