Pathogenesis

(How the disease happens).

The exact mechanism of the disease is not yet known. It is presumed to be an immune-mediated process triggered by the viral infection. In other words, people with ANE often may have an exaggerated immune response to various infections.ANE is not considered to be an inflammatory encephalitis as there are no signs of infection in the CSF or the brain (as seen in autopsies, when performed).
