Abstract

Retrospective evaluation of medical history and 3635 anti-TBE (tick-borne encephalitis) serologies during the years 2003–2008 indicates that childhood TBE is characterized by vague symptoms. Clinical findings suggest a nonspecific inflammatory disease with restricted encephalitic profile compared with adult TBE. Childhood TBE might elude diagnosis, which is unsatisfactory because of potential long-term consequences.
