Causes of Encephalitis

Encephalitis can be caused by a variety of factors, including viral infections such as herpes simplex virus, enteroviruses, and arboviruses. Bacterial infections, such as Lyme disease and tuberculosis, can also lead to encephalitis. In some cases, the condition may be triggered by an autoimmune response, where the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the brain tissue. Additionally, certain environmental factors, such as insect bites or exposure to certain animals, may also increase the risk of developing encephalitis.

Encephalitis can also be caused by non-infectious factors such as exposure to certain chemicals or toxins, head injury, or a weakened immune system due to conditions such as HIV/AIDS or cancer. It is important to be aware of these various causes in order to take steps to prevent encephalitis and seek prompt medical attention if symptoms develop.
