Japanese Encephalitis

Japanese encephalitis is a mosquito-borne viral disease that, in a small number of cases, progresses from fever and general malaise to encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) that can cause mental retardation, coma and death. Only one infection in about 250 progresses to this stage, but the disease can be prevented with vaccination.
