Symptoms are fever, headache, fatigue, muscle ache, meningitis and encephalitis. These symptoms resolve without any treatment. A more severe form presents as changes in the mental state, seizures, photophobia and paralysis. Diagnosis is made by a blood test or a lumbar puncture. Possible complications are memory disorders and behavioral changes. Treatment is usually symptomatic and supportive with paracetamol, ibuprofen, intravenous fluids and nursing care.
