A diagnosis of encephalitis is a daunting challenge! No one is prepared for its medical, emotional or financial hurdles. Many are lost in a world of medical terminology. They need someone with knowledge who is willing to serve as a sounding board, or to whom they might ask questions. This is especially true if the medical team caring for them has had little experience treating this rare condition. The International Encephalitis Consortium (IEC) strives for optimal recoveries, offering resources with which individuals can interact during the early days of the illness, and beyond.
