Is there any proper treatment for viral encephalitis with polycythemia ? Pt is 17 years old and over 6 month in icu waiting for good treatment

Is there any proper treatment for viral encephalitis  with polycythemia ? Pt is 17 years old and over 6 month in icu waiting for good treatment

Missing information: You get more from the site when you provide better background information. Just listing "Viral" doesn't give much to work with. If it has lasted 6 mo and the patient is in the ICU I suspect it is Herpes encephalitis that has not responded to treatment and the prognosis is poor. Once the infection has lasted that long the damage is often permanent. ...Read more

Reasons for adult-onset facial tics? No history of medication, no history of tics nor tourette's.  Started at age 22

Maybe not tics: Would consider possibility of facial myokymia, and even the entity of "hemifacial spasm". Focal motor seizures might be cause. If just localized "tics" over one side of face, unlikely to be tourette's. Advise visit to neurologist, get examined and pursue etiology. ...Read more
