Link: Types Of Autoimmune Encephalitis

Autoimmune Encephalitis may be triggered by infection in which case the term “Post-infectious Encephalitis” is used. ADEM( Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis ) is a Post-infectious Encephalitis. The illness usually follows in the wake of a mild viral infection (such as those that cause rashes in childhood) or immunisations. Typically there is a delay of days to two to three weeks between the triggering infection and development of the Encephalitis.
