 What is Encephalitis?
Encephalitis is an acute inflammation (swelling) of the brain usually caused by a viral infection. The course of viral encephalitis varies. Most people infected with viral encephalitis have only mild or no symptoms, and the illness doesn’t last long. Serious cases can cause headaches, high fevers, lethargy, convulsions, delirium, coma, and even death, or may leave significant cognitive impairment. Impairment can include loss of memory, the inability to speak coherently, lack of muscle coordination, paralysis, or hearing or vision defects.

What is E Global?
