Hello Desy, Thank you for your question on HealthReplies.com
Meningoencephalitis is inflammation or infection of the lining of the brain and brain caused by infection with viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites. These infections usually attack other parts of the body initially such as the ears, sinuses, throat. often occurs in children aged 5 years and under, low body resistance.
Treatment of meningoencephalitis depends on the cause, if the doctor already knows the cause, the doctor will provide therapy according to the cause. If a child has meningoencephalitis the prognosis is poor, even if the recovery is very little, and even if there will leave sequelae such as hearing loss and others. You should consult your nephew's condition with the doctor who handles him, because the doctor who handles him knows better how much hope for your nephew's recovery and what actions to take on your nephew.
Thank you, hope this is useful. Dr. Nurmarwiyah
