Eastern encephalitis is a disease of horses, man, birds, and reptiles caused by a virus that in some hosts results in an inflammation of the brain. The causative virus belongs to a group classified as mosquito-borne encephalitides. This disease, more commonly called eastern equine encephalitis in the past, occurs from Wisconsin and Texas to the Atlantic coast and is particularly prevalent on our eastern seaboard.
