We review the epidemiological and clinical characteristics of tick-borne encephalitis, and summarise biological and virological aspects that are important for understanding the life-cycle and transmission of the virus. Tick-borne encephalitis virus is a flavivirus that is transmitted by Ixodes spp ticks in a vast area from western Europe to the eastern coast of Japan. Tick-borne encephalitis causes acute meningoencephalitis with or without myelitis. Morbidity is age dependent, and is highest in… Expand

Interventional Clinical Trial
Tick-borne Encephalitis (TBE) can be prevented by vaccine. Vaccine failure, defined as a case of TBE regardless of previous vaccination, has been described and seems to be more… Expand

Tick-borne encephalitis: A review of epidemiology, clinical characteristics, and management.
TLDR
Clinical spectrum of the disease ranges from mild meningitis to severe meningoencephalitis with or without paralysis, and age of patients (increasing age is associated with less favorable outcome), and host genetic factors vary by subtype of tick-borne encephalitis virus. Expand
Tick-borne encephalitis virus - a review of an emerging zoonosis.
TLDR
This review comprehensively reviewed TBEV, its epidemiology and pathogenesis, the clinical manifestations of TBE, along with vaccination and prevention, and the factors which may have influenced an apparent increase in the number of reported human cases each year, despite the availability of effective vaccines. Expand
Tick-borne encephalitis: a disease neglected by travel medicine.
TLDR
Because of the increasing number of travellers from TBE non-endemic to endemic regions, and in view of the fact that TBE was included in the list of notifiable diseases in the European Union in September 2012, this disease needs to become an important issue in travel medicine. Expand

TLDR
Tick borne encephalitis is a viral disease due to TBEV (Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus) transmitted by infected tick-bite that is encountered in a large area from Western Europe to the eastern coast of Japan. Expand
Tick-borne encephalitis in children: an update on epidemiology and diagnosis
TLDR
Other tick-borne diseases, such as Lyme borreliosis and human granulocytic anaplasmosis, should be considered in children withtick-borne encephalitis since endemic areas for all three diseases overlap. Expand
Tick-borne encephalitis in Europe: a brief update on epidemiology, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment.
TLDR
A comprehensive review of TBE epidemiology, clinical presentation, current available diagnostic tools and treatment, and effective vaccination to prevent disease-related morbidity and mortality is performed. Expand
Tick-Borne Encephalitis Virus: A General Overview
TLDR
No specific treatment for the disease is available to date, but it can be prevented by active immunization, and the diagnosis of TBE is mainly based on the detection of specific antibodies in serum and cerebrospinal fluid. Expand
What tick-borne encephalitis may look like: clinical signs and symptoms.
TLDR
Tick-borne encephalitis is a zoonosis, endemic in a vast area of Europe and Asia, causing long-lasting morbidity that often affects the quality of life and sometimes also forces the individual to a change in lifestyle. Expand
Tick-Borne Encephalitis
TLDR
Tick-borne encephalitis is a rare disease in UK travellers, however individuals are at increased risk if they visit areas where TBE is known to occur particularly in woodland or grassland e.g. when camping or hiking. Expand
Epidemiology of tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in Europe and its prevention by available vaccines
TLDR
The present paper attempted to describe the continuously changing epidemiology of TBE in European States and to overview clinical development of available vaccines paying particular attention on cross-protection elicited by the vaccines. Expand
