Encephalitis Reported in Utica

By Timothy Perry

August 28, 2015 - 9:44


UTICA - A case of encephalitis has been reported within the Village of Utica by officials.

Encephalitis is inflammation of the brain, usually caused by a viral infection. Symptoms include headache, fever, confusion, drowsiness, and fatigue. Further symptoms include seizures or convulsions, tremors, hallucinations, stroke, and memory problems.

Most cases of encephalitis only result in flu-like symptom, or no symptoms at all. Severe cases, however, can be life threatening, so it is important that anyone who suspects they may have it be evaluated as soon as possible, especially if they are infants or young children.

According to the Mayo Clinic, it can be caused by herpes-simplex viruses, tick and mosquito-borne viruses, the rabies virus, and certain childhood infections but no specific trigger is known. It tends to be more prevalent in spring, summer, and early fall.

Those who are between the ages of 20 and 40 years of age, those with weakened immune systems, and those who live in mosquito, or tick-prone areas tend to be more at risk.

According to a post made the the Village of Utica's Facebook account, they do not know if the person was bitten in Utica, so residents should take precautions when outside in the evening hours. Officials also advise the use of mosquito repellent.
