Encephalitis, Tick-Borne

Fästingburen hjärninflammation

Svensk definition

Hjärninflammation orsakad av neurotropa virus som sprids genom fästingbett. I Europa ger olika fästingburna encefalitvirus upphov till RSSE (rysk vår-sommarencefalit), CEE (centraleuropeisk virusencefalit), louping ill-encefalit och liknande sjukdomar. Powassan-encefalit förekommer i Nordamerika och Ryssland och orsakas av Powassanvirus. Aseptisk meningit och i sällsynta fall encefalit kan vara komplikationer till Colorado-fästingfeber, som är endemisk i de västra bergstrakterna i USA.
