Encephalitis is an infectious disease of the brain and is generally caused by either viruses or bacteria.


Most cases of encephalitis occur in spring. Encephalitis’ main symptoms can last from two to ten days. The main complications that a parent can noticeare headaches and vomiting accompanied by excessive muscle weakness, drowsiness, lethargy, apathy, diplopia and other visual disturbances. All cases of encephalitis are serious. In some cases, they can cause death or cause severe complications, such as impairment or disabilities.


In addition to primary encephalitis, there is also secondary encephalitis. Secondary encephalitis is different from primary encephalitis by how the pathogenic virus enters and infects the organism from elsewhere other than the central nervous system. The virus then attacks the brain, thus causing secondary encephalitis.


Its primary form is more severe than secondary, but both primary and secondary developmentscan be unpredictable. For this reason, the parents soon realize some of the symptoms to seek the advice of the doctor.
