General nursing care of Coxsackie virus infection

Prognosis: Generally, the prognosis is good. Even with severe meningitis and encephalitis, most cases recover quickly within a few days, and only a few patients have a long course of disease. Although muscle strength decline is more common, it also recovers quickly. Only about 5% of meningitis cases can have the sequelae of muscle tension and mental retardation. Infants with systemic infection, myocarditis, pneumonia, etc. have poor prognosis and high mortality. The mortality rate of neonatal severe infection can reach 80% ~ 90%. The prognosis of myocarditis in older children and young adults is good, and most patients are cured after appropriate treatment; A small part of them become chronic, with ups and downs or recurrent attacks, among which some cases have progressive cardiac enlargement, cardiac dysfunction, arrhythmia, etc., and are prone to embolism complications.
