Abstract:

Japanese encephalitis is a severe infection of the central nervous system, with a high death rate. It can be encountered in certain climatic zones in the summer or fall, zones such as the main islands of Japan. The most successful measures of combatting this infection are destructive measures against the vectors. Hemorrhaging diathesis is encountered quite often in the clinics of Japanese encephalitis. Treatment of encephalitis patients should be conducted in neurological regional hospitals, rather than in general hospitals. Author
