Japanese encephalitis is a viral disease, transmitted by mosquito bites.

It causes serious inflammation of the brain, which may lead to permanent brain damage, and has a high mortality rate.

But the great majority of cases only produce a mild influenza-like illness, with no effect on the brain.

The disease is prevalent in large areas of Asia. But it's uncommon among tourists and short-term visitors in the areas affected.

The incubation period is from five to 15 days.

Illness ranges from asymptomatic infection (about one in 200 infections is estimated to become clinically apparent) to severe encephalitis with a high mortality and a high rate (approximately 30 per cent) of permanent neurological sequelae in survivors.

There's one new and two older vaccines. The older vaccines form part of the child vaccination programme in countries like Thailand, Korea, and Japan.
