Central European Encephalitis is a disease caused by the flavivirus virus that can affect the central nervous system. It is generally transmitted by bites from infected ticks of the Ixodes spp genus.   

The disease mostly affects men aged between 25 and 65 years, as they are most likely to be exposed to risk during outdoor activities.  

Central European encephalitis distribution

The disease is localised in Central Europe, Nordic countries and Eastern Europe. The principal vector (Ixodid ticks) exists in Spain, but remains free from the disease.
