More About
Japanese Encephalitis

Symptoms of Japanese encephalitis include fever, headache, muscle aches, and a stiff neck. These symptoms may be mild or severe, and they can develop gradually or suddenly. In more severe cases, the illness can cause seizures, coma, and even death.

There is no specific treatment for Japanese encephalitis, so treatment is generally supportive and may include medications to reduce fever and seizures, as well as breathing support if needed.

Vaccines are available to prevent Japanese encephalitis, and they are recommended for people who are planning to travel to areas where the illness is prevalent. In addition, people can reduce their risk of contracting Japanese encephalitis by taking precautions to avoid mosquito bites, such as using insect repellents and wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants.

It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect that you or someone you know has Japanese encephalitis, as early treatment can improve the chances of a full recovery.
