Examination of 38 individuals on Okinawa, in whom a diagnosis of Japanese B encephalitis had been made ten to twelve months previously, revealed that 11 had clinically detectable neurological sequelae. These included abnormalities of mental status and motor function. In only three patients was there a severely incapacitating disability.
