Scrub typhus is one of the most common undifferentiated fevers in South India. Scrub meningoencephalitis commonly presents with a severe headache and altered sensorium, along with fever. Sometimes, it is associated with seizures and focal neurological deficit. The cerebrospinal fluid analysis shows lymphocytic predominance with elevated protein and normal glucose. Tubercular meningitis is a common differential diagnosis. Prompt treatment with doxycycline is associated with favorable outcome.
