Abstract

We surveyed pediatric infectious disease physicians through the Infectious Disease Society of America's Emerging Infections Network regarding the diagnosis and management of encephalitis. We identified practice variations, particularly with the use of new diagnostic modalities and management of autoimmune encephalitides. These findings may inform the creation of updated management guidelines.
