Tick-borne encephalitis is a viral infection caused by the tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV). The tick-borne encephalitis infection mainly affects small rodents, but humans are sometimes accidental hosts. Tick-borne encephalitis has an incubation period of one to two weeks, after which symptoms develop such as fever, muscle aches, headache, anorexia, nausea, and vomiting. The second phase of the disease, which only one third of infected individuals experience, occurs approximately three weeks after being bitten by the tick and affects the central nervous system, causing symptoms of encephalitis such as drowsiness, confusion, or paralysis. Symptoms of tick-borne encephalitis are more severe and dangerous in adults. Treatment of tick-borne encephalitis includes supportive care and hospitalization. To prevent tick-borne encephalitis, individuals should use insect repellents and wear protective clothing. A vaccine is available in endemic areas.
