Prognosis of Encephalitis

Prognosis for Encephalitis: The prognosis for encephalitis varies. Some cases are mild, short and relatively benign and patients have full recovery. Other cases are severe, and permanent impairment or death is possible. The acute phase of encephalitis may last for 1 to 2 weeks, with gradual or sudden resolution of fever and neurological symptoms. Neurological symptoms may require many months before full recovery. (Source: excerpt from NINDS Encephalitis and Meningitis Information Page: NINDS) ...see also Overview of Encephalitis

About prognosis:

The prognosis of Encephalitis may include the duration of Encephalitis, chances of complications of Encephalitis, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Encephalitis, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Encephalitis. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
