Hi, my father is currently in ITU in UK having been diagnosed with a rare form of encepholitis called acute disseminated encephomyilitis where the brain swelling is preceeded by an upper respitory tract infection, which eventually leads to damage to the 'white matter' myelin, which is a sheath protecting nerve endings etc. He is now in a coma with only a score of 4 on the glasgow coma scale.
