Abstract: Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain due to variety of causes resulting in various neuropsychiatric manifestations both during short term as well as long term. However, the varied presentation following encephalitis requires apt assessment so as not to miss the precedence of symptoms suggestive of encephalitis in view of prompt diagnosis and appropriate management as well as to avoid unnecessary long-term treatment with psychotropics. Here we report 3 such interesting cases of post encephalitic patients presenting with varied neuropsychiatric sequelae. Among 3 of the cases, we report here, one patient presented with conversion disorder, another with features of BPAD and one more with psychosis. Case appropriate management in each patient yielded positive results in treating them effectively.
Keywords: Organic Mania, post encephalitic sequela, organic psychosis
