What is acute encephalitis syndrome?
AES in short, it is a basket term used for referring to hospital, children with clinical neurological manifestations which include mental confusion, disorientation, convulsion, delirium or coma.
Is encephalitis different from hypoglycaemic encephalopathy?
Yes. The two conditions show very different symptoms and clinical manifestations.
Fever on the first day is one of the symptoms of encephalitis before brain dysfunction begins. While fever is seen in children in the case of hypoglycaemic encephalopathy, fever is always after the onset of brain dysfunction (actually due to brain dysfunction). And not all children exhibit fever. Some children have no fever, while others may have a mild or very high fever.
The blood sugar level is usually normal in children with encephalitis but is low in children with hypoglycaemic encephalopathy.
