    • The fungus Cryptococcus neoformans is a yeast-like fungus found in soil around the world. It is most common in soil contaminated by bird droppings.
    • The disease usually involves the brain and lungs. Advance stages of the disease can involve almost any organ.
    Danger Zone
    • CD4+ cells less than 50/mm.
    NOTE: If you are undergoing treatment that has increased your CD4+ levels, see the important note on Naive T-Cells . There is some evidence that you should use the lowest CD4+ level you ever had when considering your risk for some opportunistic infections.

    About the Diseases
    Meningitis and septicaemia can kill in hours. Meningitis is the inflammation of the lining around the brain and spinal cord. Septicaemia is the blood poisoning form of the disease. The two forms of the disease have different symptoms . People who recover from meningitis and septicaemia may be left with a range of after effects that dramatically alter their lives. Meningitis is usually bacterial or viral , and occasionally is due to fungal infections, although almost any microbe can cause it. Viral meningitis can be very unpleasant but it is almost never life threatening and most people quickly make a full recovery. Bacterial meningitis is more serious and can be caused by a range of different bacteria, although most cases in the UK and Ireland are caused by meningococcal bacteria. Meningococcal bacteria can cause meningitis or septicaemia or both. Most people who get the disease have some symptoms of both meningococcal meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia; together these two forms of the disease are known as meningococcal disease Septicaemia is the more life threatening form of the disease and is more dangerous when there are no signs of meningitis.

    Meningococcal Disease Frequently Asked Questions What is meningitis?
    Meningitis is an infection of the fluid of a person's spinal cord and the fluid that surrounds the brain. People sometimes refer to it as spinal meningitis. Meningitis is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Knowing whether meningitis is caused by a virus or bacterium is important because the severity of illness and the treatment differ. Viral meningitis is generally less severe and resolves without specific treatment, while bacterial meningitis can be quite severe and may result in brain damage, hearing loss, or learning disability. For bacterial meningitis, it is also important to know which type of bacteria is causing the meningitis because antibiotics can prevent some types from spreading and infecting other people. Before the 1990s, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) was the leading cause of bacterial meningitis, but new vaccines being given to all children as part of their routine immunizations have reduced the occurrence of invasive disease due to

    Meningitis is an infection of the covering layers of the brain (meninges). Meningitis can be caused by various sorts of infection, with a virus, with a bacterium, and even with fungi.
    • Viral meningitis is usually considered to be benign, and is a fairly common complication of virus infections. There is no specific treatment.
    • The three main causes of bacterial meningitis have been:
      • Haemophilus Influenzae type b (Hib),
      • Meningococcus , and
      • Pneumococcus
      In Britain, the introduction of a Hib vaccination has led to a virtual eradication of Hib meningitis. The other two are left as the major causes of bacterial meningitis.
    The patient usually begins to feel vaguely unwell and may develop headache and a raised temperature ( fever ). There may also be vomiting. Unfortunately many ordinary germs start in this way, and certain other features can help to alert us to the possibility of meningitis. It is important not to be over anxious, but if in doubt it is better to discuss with your doctor. More suspicious symptoms include:
    • neck and back stiffness

    Measles Viral Gastroenteritis Rotavirus ... Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Viral ("Aseptic") Meningitis What is meningitis? Meningitis is an illness in which there is inflammation of the tissues that cover the brain and spinal cord. Viral or "aseptic" meningitis, which is the most common type, is caused by an infection with one of several types of viruses. Meningitis can also be caused by infections with several types of bacteria or fungi. In the United States, there are between 25,000 and 50,000 hospitalizations due to viral meningitis each year. What are the symptoms of meningitis? The more common symptoms of meningitis are fever, severe headache, stiff neck, bright lights hurting the eyes, drowsiness or confusion, and nausea and vomiting. In babies, the symptoms are more difficult to identify. They may include fever, fretfulness or irritability, difficulty in awakening the baby, or the baby refuses to eat. The symptoms of meningitis may not be the same for every person. Is viral meningitis a serious disease?

    meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord.

    Parents Infections
    Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges , the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. The inflammation is usually caused by bacteria or viruses (viral meningitis is also called aseptic meningitis ). Less common causes include fungi, protozoa, and other parasites. Sometimes certain medications, cancers, or other diseases can inflame the meninges, although such noninfectious cases of meningitis are much rarer. Many of the bacteria or viruses that can cause meningitis are fairly common and are more often associated with other everyday illnesses. Sometimes, however, they spread to the meninges from an infection in another part of the body. The infection can start anywhere, including in the skin, gastrointestinal tract, or urinary system, but the most common source is the respiratory tract. From there the microorganisms can enter the bloodstream, travel through the body, and enter the central nervous system. In some cases of bacterial meningitis, the bacteria spread directly to the meninges from a severe nearby infection, such as a serious ear infection (otitis media) or nasal sinus infection (sinusitis). Bacteria may also enter the central nervous system after severe head trauma or head surgery.

    Responde preguntas frecuentes de los padres sobre la enfermedad.
    MENINGITIS BACTERIANA ¿Qué es la meningitis? La meningitis es una inflamación de las membranas que recubren el cerebro y la médula espinal -conocidas como las meninges. Puede ser causada por virus, parásitos, hongos y bacterias. La meningitis viral (aséptica) es común y la mayoría de la gente logra recuperarse por completo. El tratamiento médico de la meningitis viral consiste en tratamiento de apoyo y generalmente no se indica el uso de antibióticos. Las meningitis parasitaria o las causadas por hongos son poco frecuentes. La meningitis bacteriana es muy grave y puede requerir de complicados tratamientos médicos, quirúrgicos, farmacéuticos y de equipos para mantener las funciones vitales. Hay dos tipos comunes de bacterias que causan la meningitis: Strep pneumoniae causa la meningitis por neumococos; hay más de 80 subtipos que causan enfermedades.
    • Neisseria meningitidis —causa la meningitis por meningococo; hay 5 subtipos que causan enfermedades graves—A, B, C, Y, W-135
