Encephalitis represents a major risk factor through its virulent outcome and the probability of great complications which can generate encephalopathy and whose clinical picture can lead to psychiatric complications and consequently to a socio-financial impact on society and the family. The costs of the treatment of encephalitis are of two types: one immediate in the acute onset, consisting of the medical treatment for the fight against the viral process and the second type consisting of the treatment for the support of the vital functions and also for the patient’s maintenance in the stabilisation period. The latter has the role to prevent the complications, to strengthen the immune response of the organism, to improve treatment outcomes and to maintain the function of the nervous system in the best parameters. The aim of the research is to highlight, in terms of economic and medical efficiency, the medical treatments used for the improvement of the symptoms of encephalitis in children, depending on the type of the disease, viruses and comorbidities associated. So the impact of the options widely applicable with good results was simulated for the creation of a model of economic-medical efficiency.
