The purpose

Introduction: Acute encephalitis (AE) is a severe neurological disorder associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Approximately 50% of patients with AE require ICU admission because of coma, seizures or acute respiratory failure. Determinants of neurological prognosis in these patients are not known. Objectives: Main objective: To identify determinants of outcome in adult patients admitted to the ICU; Secondary objectives: a) To study the impact of diagnostic studies (Brain MRI, CSF analysis, EEG) on neurologic outcome; b) to describe the epidemiology of patients admitted to the ICU with AE; c) to study the impact of early appropriate therapy on neurologic outcomes; d) to describe morbidity and mortality associated with AE at 90 days and 1 year following diagnosis. Methods: prospective observational multicenter study in French ICUs. All patients admitted to the ICU for probable or confirmed AE (2013 IDSA criteria)with a Glasgow coma scale score < or =to 13 will be eligible for inclusion. Factors associated with a poor prognosis at 90 days will be identified by multivariable logistic regression analysis. Duration of study: 30 months (recruitment 18 months, follow-up 12 months). Patients: 300 patients Endpoints: - Primary endpoint: The primary endpoint is the modified Rankin scale score 90 days following onset of abnormal status (GCS < or =13). This score will be determined by contacting the patient. A poor outcome will be defined as a mRS >2 at 90 days. - Secondary endpoints: a) neurological findings within 7 days following onset of altered mental status; b) abnormal findings on diagnostic studies (MRI, EEG, CSF analysis) within7 days following onset of altered mental status; c) Time between onset of altered mental status and completion of diagnostic studies; d)Time between onset of altered mental status and start of appropriate specific therapy; e) neurologic outcomes at 1 year mRS score and extended Glasgow outcome scale (GOS); f) causes of death in non-survivors at 1 year; g) quality of life and posttraumatic stress at 1 year: IADL and SF36 scales;
