The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) Diagnostic Manual's goal is to assist clinicians who look after people with epilepsy to diagnose the epilepsy syndrome and (if possible) the etiology of the epilepsy.

Arriving at the correct epilepsy syndrome and/or etiology allows better decision-making about treatment and improves patient care. Neurologic abnormalities of late Lyme disease usually develop a year or more after illness onset: progressive encephalomyelitis focal encephalitis cerebral vasculitis stroke multi-infarct dementia leukoencephalitis brain stem encephalitis late encephalopathy cerebellar ataxia transverse myelitis progressive spastic paraparesis or quadriparesis cognitive deficits affective disturbance seizures.

Malaria can be treated effectively early in the course of the disease, but delay of therapy can have serious or even fatal consequences.

Specific treatment options depend on the species of malaria, the severity of infection, the likelihood of drug resistance (based on where the infection was acquired), and the patient’s age and pregnancy status.

However, establishing the causal relationship between infections and the development of epilepsy is difficult, since epilepsy occurs a variable period after an acute infection.

Malaria is a mosquito-borne infectious disease that affects humans and other animals. Malaria causes symptoms that typically include fever, tiredness, vomiting, and headaches.

In severe cases it can cause yellow skin, seizures, coma, or death. Symptoms usually begin ten to fifteen days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. If not properly treated, people may have recurrences of the Complications: Yellow skin, seizures, coma.
