Brief description Encephalitis is a common cause of neurological disability in young adults and adolescents. We have identified a subgroup of encephalitis which is due to the patient's own immune system attacking the brain. Our study will identify the earliest immune responses against the brain in children with encephalitis. Identifying these early immune responses in people with encephalitis will allow early and directed treatments to prevent disability and death in the future.
