Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a human viral infectious disease involving the central nervous system. The disease is most often manifested as meningitis, encephalitis or meningoencephalitis. Although TBE is most commonly recognized as a neurologic disease, mild febrile illnesses can also occur. Person-to-person transmission has not been reported, but vertical transmission from an infected mother to fetus has occurred.
