A person with suspected tick-borne encephalitis has been reported to Hastings Prince Edward Public Health (HPEPH) and is under investigation, the health unit said in a press release issued Friday, July 10.
Tick-borne encephalitis is a rare infection that can cause fever, headache, vomiting, weakness, confusion, seizures and memory loss. Long-term neurologic problems may occur. There is no specific treatment, and people with severe infection often need to be hospitalized to receive respiratory support, intravenous fluids, or medications to reduce swelling in the brain.
