Japanese encephalitis - What are the symptoms?

Following infection, most people don’t develop any symptoms.1  In the very few who do, Japanese encephalitis can be serious — it affects the brain (central nervous system), and may cause symptoms such as headache, fever and vomiting, followed by possible seizures (especially in children), weakness, and jerky movements and inflammation of the brain and spinal cord.  In some cases it may result in death.1
