My son got post infectious encephalitis from mono (Epstein Barr Virus) 18 months ago. He was a very smart high school student and a gifted ice hockey player. The chances of getting encephalitis from mono are very rare. The is little to know information to be found on this. We treat him symptomatically. He has great doctors at the Ohio State University. Presently, my son is doing very well. He is in school and is even taking an AP class. He has many supports in place (tutoring, special ed, clergy). The most challenging issue which he faces today it the complete lack of a long term memory. The only thing he can remember from prior to his illness is people and their association to him. He cannot remember any vacations, parties, how to study, time management, etc. Just people. Photo albums really frustrate him and that is not an option right now for help. Does anyone have a problem like this? Does anyone have a treatment that worked for them or anything of the sort? Thanks and good luck to everyone on their recovery!
