3. What Are the Mild Symptoms?

A very mild case of encephalitis may have no symptoms at all. If signs of illness do appear, they may resemble the flu with a fever, poor appetite, lack of energy, and headaches. There may also be fatigue or sensitivity to light.

Because encephalitis can appear as a relatively mild case, the number of actual cases each year could be significantly under-reported. If encephalitis is suspected, even in a mild case, it is important to visit a trained medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.
