Consensus Guidelines for the Investigation and Management of Encephalitis
Encephalitis is caused by inflammation of the brain and is a challenging condition for clinicians to identify and manage.
It manifests as a complex neurological syndrome with protean clinical manifestations that may be caused by a large number of aetiologies, many without effective treatments.
It can be fatal and survivors often experience significant neurological morbidity. Studies have shown variable quality in case management in multiple settings, 1,3 emphasising the need for consensus guidelines.
