Summaries for La Crosse Encephalitis

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 La Crosse (LAC) encephalitis is a mosquito-borne virus that was first described in La Crosse, Wisconsin in 1963. Since then, it has been reported in several Midwestern and Mid-Atlantic states. The LAC virus is one of many mosquito-transmitted viruses that can cause an inflammation of the brain (encephalitis ). About 80-100 cases of this condition are reported each year in the United States. Most cases occur in children younger than age 16. While most people who become infected have no symptoms, those who do become ill may have fever, headache, vomiting and lethargy (tiredness). Severe cases develop encephalitis accompanied by seizures . Coma and paralysis occur in some cases. There is no specific treatment for LAC encephalitis. Supportive therapy is provided to those who develop severe cases of the disease.

MalaCards based summary : La Crosse Encephalitis, also known as california encephalitis, is related to encephalitis and acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, and has symptoms including seizures, fever and paralysis. An important gene associated with La Crosse Encephalitis is LGI1 (Leucine Rich Glioma Inactivated 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways is LGI-ADAM interactions. Affiliated tissues include brain, temporal lobe and thymus.

Disease Ontology : 12 A viral infectious disease that results in inflammation located in brain, has material basis in La Crosse virus, which is transmitted by treehole mosquito, Ochlerotatus triseriatus. The infection has symptom seizures, has symptom headache, has symptom fever, has symptom coma, and has symptom paralysis.

CDC : 3 La Crosse encephalitis is a viral disease spread to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Most cases occur in the upper Midwestern, mid-Atlantic, and southeastern states. Many people infected have no apparent symptoms. Some of those who become ill develop severe neuroinvasive disease (disease that affects the nervous system). Severe disease often involves encephalitis (an inflammation of the brain) and can include seizures, coma, and paralysis. Severe disease occurs most often in children under the age of 16.
