In brief: Arbovirus encephalit

The majority of human infections are asymptomatic or may result in a nonspecific flu-like syndrome.
Onset may be insidious or sudden with fever, headache, myalgias, malaise and occasionally prostration. Infection may, however, lead to encephalitis, with a fatal outcome or permanent neurologic sequelae. Fortunately, only a small proportion of infected persons progress to frank encephalitis.Cdc.Gov.
