Encephalitis: Overview

Encephalitis is a medical term used for describing an uncommon health condition which causes acute inflammation (swelling) of the brain tissue. The condition can occur due to a viral/bacterial infection, a non-infectious inflammatory disorder, or the mistaken attack of the body’s own immune system on the brain tissue.

Encephalitis is Mainly of Two Types

  • Primary Encephalitis: This kind of Encephalitis involves a direct viral infection of the brain or spinal cord.
  • Secondary Encephalitis: This kind of Encephalitis is indicative of an infection which spreads to the brain after starting off in some other part of the body.

Encephalitis can affect people of all age groups. However, the risk of contracting this infection is generally high in children, older adults, and people with a weak immune system.


The exact cause of Encephalitis may not always be clear in all patients. Nonetheless, some of the common causes of the condition are:

  • Viral infections: The viruses which can usually cause brain inflammation indicating the occurrence of Encephalitis include the herpes simplex virus, Epstein-Barr virus, HIV, and cytomegalovirus.
  • Bacterial infections
  • Fungal infections
  • Disorders affecting the immune system of the body.


In most cases, people suffering from Encephalitis exhibit flu-like symptoms. However, the symptoms of the condition can also sometimes be quite severe. In general, some of the symptoms of Encephalitis are:

  • Headache
