Good evening, thanks for the question
Triassic symptoms consisting of high fever, convulsions, and decreased consciousness are diagnostic criteria for the medical condition of encephalitis. Encephalitis is inflammation or inflammation of the brain. This inflammation then causes swelling of the brain tissue. Encephalitis causes disorders of the child's central nervous system which is characterized by changes in consciousness status and seizures. Meningitis or inflammation of the lining of the brain often accompanies the condition of encephalitis. Both are emergency conditions that require immediate action and can be life threatening.
Encephalitis can be caused by a viral or bacterial infection that initially attacks other organs and then spreads to the brain through the bloodstream. Severe infection then causes the spread of infection throughout the bloodstream called sepsis. The diagnosis of encephalitis consists of symptom interviews, general physical and nerve examinations, and supporting examinations including blood tests, MRI, CT scans, lumbar puncture, electroencephalogram, as well as urine and feces examinations.
The goal of treatment in encephalitis is to reduce brain swelling and prevent complications. Patients will need intensive treatment to overcome the infection and prevent back seizures. In severe cases even children can need breathing aids.
Complications can occur if the infection is very severe or the child is late getting treatment. Damage to the brain will cause sequelae after recovery, so the child can require physical therapy, occupation, and speech. Therapy is also needed to restore the child's motor muscle strength.
Consult directly with the patient's physician in charge of future treatment plans, possible side effects of treatment, possible complications, and healing outcomes in patients in accordance with the current development of the disease.
That's all, hope you can help.
