In brief: Could be.

All encephalitis are serious.
This is an encephalitis attacking the posterior and low areas of the neuronal axis below the brain(hindbrain). Rhombencephalo[from rhombus + encephalon]:is the part of the brain that develops from the posterior portion of the embryonic neural tube and comprises the cerebellum, pons, and the medulla oblongata.Compare mesencephalon, prosencephalon.

In brief: Unsure

You are probably referring to encephalitis affecting the rhrombencephalon.
This involves the frontal region of the brain. Any encephalitis can be serious, but good medical care will provide good recovery.
