clinically history and Labs suggests more of Dengue fever with hepatomegaly and Viral encephalitis...Less likely Hepatic encephalopathy as LFT are not that much deranged... Report wise 9.2 mm GB sludge not making any sense...They should label it as GB stone or sludge ( sludge size difficult to meausre).Any way there is no need of treatment for the same..

What is cutoff size of sludge for surgical intervention?

Is lft abnormal or serum ammonia elevated What is the basis of hepatic encephalopathy diagnosis? If a patient is alert theres no encephalopathy Single seizure and a normal contrast ct could be due to any cause Does any test reveal malaria? There is no evidence of encephalitis or encephalopathy Just single seizure episode and intermittent fever.please revise dds.

Cerebral malaria and enteric encephalopathy are other dds because these two diseases are more prevalent in our country
