Tick-borne encephalitis

Common Name(s)

Tick-borne encephalitis

Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral infection caused by a tick bite. Beginning symptoms are flu-like (fever, aches, and fatigue). Seizures, loss of control of physical movement, and light sensitivity may occur if the infection worsens. There is no cure for TBE, so treatment focuses on improving symptoms and comforting the patient until the infection passes. TBE is found in regions of Europe and Asia. If travelling to these regions there is a TBE vaccine to protect yourself from an infection. Another simple way to prevent TBE is to check your body for ticks after travelling through any wooded areas or habitats where ticks might live.
