Japanese B encephalitis

This mosquito-borne flavivirus infection presents a real dilemma to the traveller and doctor because it is a very severe infection (mortality rate 20-40%) with high infectivity and high prevalence in endemic countries. The vaccine is prone to give anaphylaxis and is unlicensed in Australia and the United States. It may be obtained only in very restricted circumstances but can be obtained more readily abroad.

The disease is prevalent during summer in the region bound in the west by Nepal and Siberian Russia and in the east by Japan and Singapore, especially in Nepal, Burma, Korea, Vietnam, Thailand, China, eastern Russia and the lowlands of India. Rice paddies and pig farms are areas of risk. The usual preventive measures against mosquito bites are important.
