Summaries for Herpes Simplex Encephalitis

NIH Rare Diseases : 54 Herpes simplex encephalitis is a rare neurological condition that is characterized by inflammation of the brain (encephalitis). People affected by this condition may experience a headache and fever for up to 5 days, followed by personality and behavioral changes; seizures; hallucinations; and altered levels of consciousness. Without early diagnosis and treatment, severe brain damage or even death may occur. Herpes simplex encephalitis is caused by a virus called the herpes simplex virus. Most cases are associated with herpes simplex virus type I (the cause of cold sores or fever blisters), although rare cases can be caused by herpes simplex virus type II (genital herpes). It is poorly understood why some people who are infected with herpes simplex virus develop herpes simplex encephalitis while others do not. Changes (mutations) in genes such as TLR3 and TRAF3 have been observed suggesting there may be a genetic component in some cases. Treatment consists of antiviral therapy.

MalaCards based summary : Herpes Simplex Encephalitis, also known as herpes simplex meningo-encephalitis, is related to encephalitis and herpes simplex. An important gene associated with Herpes Simplex Encephalitis is UNC93B1 (Unc-93 Homolog B1, TLR Signaling Regulator), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Activated TLR4 signalling. The drugs Acyclovir and Loperamide have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include brain, temporal lobe and testes, and related phenotypes are hematopoietic system and homeostasis/metabolism
