Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) is a serious condition that requires prompt and appropriate treatment. Initially, this condition often causes only mild symptoms, which are similar to the common cold cough. However, as the disease progresses, a variety of other complaints will arise, including headache, fever, muscle and joint pain, weakness, fatigue, mental confusion, agitation, hallucinations, seizures, paralysis, speech problems, hearing loss, and decreased consciousness. This condition often occurs due to:
Infection in the brain Infection of other organs that spreads to the brain, or causes inflammation to the brain. Several types of infections that often cause encephalitis are Herpes simplex, Herpes zoster, Enterovirus, Rabies, Rubella, Rubeolla, and so on.
Pneumonia (lung infection) also often occurs due to infection, it can be due to bacteria (for example Streptococcus pneumonia), fungi, viruses, or other microorganisms. This virus can be transmitted directly from other people or indirectly (for example, due to the use of a ventilator). In infants and children, this condition can also arise as a result of aspiration (choking of substances other than air into the lungs). Usually, pneumonia sufferers will experience chest discomfort, coughing, mental confusion, weakness, fatigue, fever, excessive sweating, chills, nausea, vomiting, shortness of breath, and so on.
Pneumonia that is not properly treated can cause an infection that spreads to the brain. Conversely, treatment of encephalitis, for example by administering a ventilator due to respiratory failure, can also put sufferers at a higher risk of developing pneumonia. This condition is more susceptible to occur in people with weak immune systems (for example due to HIV / AIDS, malnutrition, taking long-term steroid drugs). Brain surgery is actually not a common condition to treat encephalitis or pneumonia, unless this condition has involved other complications in the brain, for example bleeding, abscesses, and so on.
Need to clarify, what kind of heart anfal and coma do you mean? What operations have you had before? Has the doctor examined your child? So, what kind of treatment steps do doctors recommend?
Encephalitis and pneumonia are not mild diseases themselves. Handling of this condition is not a simple action. Therefore, there are many factors that can cause sufferers to experience heart problems, coma, and various other postoperative complications, which can occur as part of the course of the disease itself, side effects of the treatment carried out, and various other factors. It is the doctor who treats your child who knows best about your child's current condition, including with the best treatment to deal with his / her complaints. Therefore, you should consult directly with a neurologist, neurosurgeon, or an internal medicine specialist who treats your child.
I hope this helps.
