BACKGROUND Japanese encephalitis is a major public health problem in Asia. However, there is little data on the long-term outcome of Japanese encephalitis survivors. METHODS We prospectively evaluated children with serologically confirmed Japanese encephalitis over an 8.3-year period. The patients were assessed and their outcomes were graded with a functional outcome score at hospital discharge and at follow-up appointments. We examined how patient outcome at hospital discharge compared with…

Long-Term Morbidity and Functional Outcome of Japanese Encephalitis in Children: A Prospective Cohort Study
TLDR
Nearly two-thirds of the Japanese Encephalitis survivors recovered fully, most within the first year after discharge, and improvement of morbidities was noted mostly within initial 1 year of follow-up.
Clinical characteristics and outcome of clinically diagnosed viral encephalitis in southwest China
TLDR
Use of mechanical ventilation, lower Glasgow coma score, and concurrent seizures are predictors for a poor outcome in patients both at hospital discharge and at long-term follow-up visits.

TLDR
Seizures and abnormal breathing pattern may predict a poor outcome in children with Japanese encephalitis, and a combination of ≧2 witnessed convulsions and abnormal breathe pattern predicted aPoor outcome with 78% sensitivity and 98% specificity.
Adults with severe Japanese encephalitis: a retrospective analysis of 9 cases in Linyi, China
TLDR
Serologic examination, coma, and status epilepticus may indicate a poor outcome for severe Japanese encephalitis, and the hippocampus is the second most common lesion in the adults with severe JE.
Predictors of Outcome in Clinically Diagnosed Viral Encephalitis Patients: A 5-Year Prospective Study
TLDR
It is suggested that low GCS scores at admission, focal neurological deficits at admission and a prolonged total hospital stay are predictors of a poor outcome at discharge in clinically diagnosed viral encephalitis patients.
Clinical Characteristics of Severe Japanese Encephalitis: A Case Series from South Korea.
TLDR
Comparison between the two outcome groups indicated that midbrain involvement and rapid deterioration were associated with severe neurological sequelae and vaccination for adults should be considered in response to the reemergence of JE.
The Functional, Social and Economic Impact of Acute Encephalitis Syndrome in Nepal – a Longitudinal Follow-Up Study
TLDR
A need for long-term medical support following Acute Encephalitis Syndrome is highlighted, especially since only supportive treatment is available, and Rationalisation of initial expensive hospital treatments may be warranted.

Epidemiology, Outcomes and Predictors of Recovery in Childhood Encephalitis: A Hospital-based Study
TLDR
This study is unique in identification of race/ethnicity as an independent predictor of pediatric encephalitis outcomes and additional variables may be useful ancillary tools in determining prognosis.

Prognostic factors of early sequelae and fatal outcome of Japanese encephalitis.
TLDR
It is suggested that early diagnosis and treatment and universal JE vaccination for all susceptible populations are keys for decreasing incidence of sequelae and fatal outcome of acute JE.

JE was the commonest cause of febrile encephalopathy in Nepali children and Neurological sequelae were common but resolved in two-thirds of cases.

TLDR
Deep coma, bronchopneumonia with cyanosis, apnea attacks, prolonged fever and coma were all correlated (without statistical significance) to a higher risk for subsequent sequelae.

TLDR
The study showed that significant neurologic and overall functional disability were evident in a high proportion of JE survivors many years after their index hospitalizations.
A comparison of clinical and radiological findings in adults and children with Japanese encephalitis.
TLDR
Children with JE are more likely to have dystonia and a poor outcome at 6 months compared with adults, and the difference in clinical findings and outcome may be owing to immunological factors, maturation of the central nervous system, and neuronal plasticity.

TLDR
Although further assessment is needed, the long-term neurological and functional sequelae of WNV infection are likely to represent a considerable source of morbidity in patients long after their recovery from acute illness.
Seizures and raised intracranial pressure in Vietnamese patients with Japanese encephalitis.
TLDR
It is suggested that in JE, seizures and raised intracranial pressure may be important causes of death and the outcome may be improved by measures aimed at controlling these secondary complications.
