Meningitis overview

Meningitis is the inflammation of the meninges, protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. The cause of inflammation can be infection by viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms, and less commonly by certain drugs. As the inflammation is in proximity to the brain and spinal cord, meningitis can be life-threatening, depending on its cause. Viral meningitis is not life-threatening; those affected can be recover quickly. Bacterial meningitis is serious and life-threatening. The three major bacteria are Neisseria meningitides, which causes meningococcal meningitis; pneumococcal meningitis is caused by the bacteria streptococcus pneumonia; and haemophilius influenza causes meningitis in infants. 44–46% of cases of bacterial meningitis have all of the following three symptoms: severe headache, nuchal ridgidity (inability to flex the neck forward), and altered mental status. Severe headache occurs in 90% of the cases. Other symptoms include photophobia (fear of bright light) and phonophobia (fear of loud noises). In infants up to 6 months, bulging of the fontanelle (soft spot on the baby’s head) may be visible. Less severe symptoms, including extreme cold, abnormality in skin color, and leg pain, may also be distinguishing features for meningitis.
