Jul 06, 2018
Encephalitis is a tick-borne viral disease. Encephalitis people can get infected from a tick bite when they get into the habitat of mites - carriers of the virus. It is also possible to get infected with raw goat or cow's milk.
Symptoms: as a rule, tick-borne encephalitis begins suddenly, with a sudden increase in temperature to 39 ° C, fever and intoxication. The disease is accompanied by severe headache, nausea and vomiting, a feeling of general weakness and sleep disorders.
What's going on? In case of untimely diagnosis( and at this stage it is rather difficult to put it), the next phase of the disease occurs with a lesion of the nervous system. Alternatively, the febrile stage lasts for up to a week, then for a period of 1-2 weeks, relative well-being lasts, followed by a new fever, intoxication and damage to the nervous system.
Depending on the affected part of the nervous system, meningeal, meningoencephalitic, poliomyelitis and polyradiculoneuric forms are distinguished.
The meningeal form of encephalitis has a favorable course. With this form of the disease, the muscles of the occiput harden, the fever lasts up to two weeks, then recovery comes.
Meningoencephalitic form of encephalitis is characterized by a more severe course of the disease. The disease is accompanied by lethargy and drowsiness, headache, nausea and vomiting gain strength. Cramps and epileptic seizures are possible, accompanied by impaired swallowing and breathing. Often there is delirium and hallucinations, agitation and impaired consciousness.
The poliomyelitis form of encephalitis is accompanied by paresis and paralysis of the upper limbs and cervico-brachial musculature. After 2 weeks or at a later date, the atrophy of the affected muscles occurs.
Polyradiculoneuritic form affects the nerves and roots along the nerve trunks, characterized by pain and sensitivity disorders.
What should I do? Treatment of tick-borne encephalitis is carried out under the close supervision of a physician. Recovery comes slowly.
Prevention of tick-borne encephalitis involves measures to protect against ticks in nature( in the forest and in the suburban area, if it is located near the forest) and the intake of exclusively boiled milk. A good effect is given by antiancephalitic inoculations. The mite detected on the body or head should be removed in a clinic where, at the same time as the mite is removed, an age-appropriate dose of anti-malignant gammoglobulin will be administered.
