that depends on what is causing the encephalitis and if the cause can be cured or not.

liver failure causing hepatic encephalopathy usually can't be cured because the liver function can't be fixed unless a liver transplant can be performed

however, infection causes of encephalitis could be reversed if the infection is treated and reversed.

let me know if you have questions.
