22. Meningitis
You may be wondering what the deal is with meningitis because you ve heard frightening stuff about meningitis outbreaks in the news.

Teens Infections
Meningitis can be a serious infection, and it can be contagious - which is why outbreaks make the news. However, it's also pretty rare, and it can be treated. What Is Meningitis?
Meningitis means inflammation of the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord called the meninges (pronounced: muh- nin -jeez). It often occurs when an infection elsewhere in the body spreads through the blood and into the cerebrospinal fluid (the fluid that circulates in the spaces in and around the brain and spinal cord). Although most cases of meningitis happen in kids age 5 and younger, and in 16- to 25-year-olds, people can get it at any age. There are several types of meningitis, and their severity and treatment can vary depending on which type a person has. Most cases of meningitis are caused by viruses ( viral meningitis ) or bacteria ( bacterial meningitis ), but fungi and other organisms can also cause infectious meningitis. Some cases of meningitis result from head injuries, certain cancers or other diseases, or reactions to medications. Viral meningitis is caused by such viruses as enteroviruses , which are very common in summer and early fall. These viruses can spread through contact with saliva, mucus, or feces (poop). That doesn't mean that people need to kiss or share a sandwich to catch the virus, though. People can spread the infection when they touch surfaces that others will touch or when they sneeze without covering their mouths. Enteroviruses begin to multiply in the digestive tract and can spread through the body to cause meningitis.

Weitere Informationen zur Meningokokken-Meningitis
" Meningitis " heißt, daß die Hirnhäute entzündet sind. Es gibt eine große Zahl von Krankheitserregern oder anderen Ursachen, die zu einer entzündlichen Reizung der Hirnhäute führen können. Dazu zählen eine große Zahl von Viren und auch viele Bakterien. Reise- und tropenmedizinisch wichtig ist die sogen. Meningokokken-Meningitis, die durch Bakterien ausgelöst wird. Gegen diese Formen kann mit guten Impfstoffen Schutz erreicht werden. Prinzipiell sind die durch Bakterien verursachten Meningitisformen einer antibiotischen Therapie zugänglich. In jedem Fall braucht jede Meningitis bzw. meningitische Reizung intensive ärztliche Betreuung. Im Folgenden wird speziell die Meningokokken-Meningitis abgehandelt.
Die Infektion: Bei der Meningokokken-Meningitis handelt es sich um eine akute durch Tröpfchen übertragene Infektionserkrankung, die besonders die Hirnhäute befällt. Als Erreger sind die sogen. Meningokokken von Typ A, B, C, Y und W bekannt. Diese, wie auch die meisten anderen Meningitis-Erreger, gehen von Mensch zu Menschen über durch sogen. Tröpfcheninfektion, d.h., schon bei relativ distanzierten Kontakten (wie z.B. Husten im dichten Gedränge oder im Gespräch). Allerdings trägt ein großer Prozentsatz der Menschen auf der Welt (auch in Europa) Meningitis-Erreger im Mundbereich, ohne daß es zu Erkrankung oder Ansteckung kommt.

Officials weigh vaccinations in meningitis scare
People lined up outside Alliance Community Hospital Sunday for preventative antibiotics ALLIANCE, Ohio (CNN) Experts with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are due to arrive here Monday to determine whether a widespread immunization program is needed in this community after a bacterial infection killed two teenagers and left a third in the hospital. Over the weekend, an estimated 15,000 to 18,000 residents flocked to local hospitals to get preventative antibiotics. "Everybody's panicking," one 16-year-old student told The Associated Press. However, he said he was not concerned because, "All of my friends are already on the medication." In fact, distribution of the antibiotics stopped Monday morning after health officials determined that the exposure period had expired, said Karen Vrabec, a spokeswoman for Alliance Community Hospital. ALSO Third case of dangerous bacterial infection diagnosed in Ohio RESOURCES Learn more about meningitis from the CDC "It is no longer clinically necessary or beneficial to take the antibiotic," Vrabec said.

Meningitis vaccine shortages possible
Story Tools ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) The country could face shortages of a popular childhood meningitis vaccine next year because of production problems, federal officials said Thursday. HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS Meningitis Diseases or Create your own Manage alerts What is this? Prevnar, also known as PCV7, is used to protect children against invasive pneumococcal disease, which can lead to meningitis or blood stream infections. A one-week production stoppage last month to improve the process that fills vials with vaccine has caused a ripple effect that may lead to delays in the shipping of Prevnar early next year, said Doug Petkus, spokesman for Collegeville, Pennsylvania-based drug maker Wyeth Pharmaceuticals. "That type of stoppage tends to create bottlenecks in our system," Petkus said. "We are getting the product out there in as equitable and evenly distributed as we can." The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which recommends a four-dose shot schedule for all children starting at age 2 months, said it won't change its recommendation while there is still enough vaccine.

Go to PDF Version Meningococcal Disease WHAT IS MENINGITIS?

High fever, headache, and stiff neck are common symptoms of meningitis in anyone over the age of 2 years. These symptoms can develop over several hours, or they may take 1 to 2 days. Other symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, discomfort looking into bright lights, confusion, and sleepiness. In newborns and small infants, the classic symptoms of fever, headache, and neck stiffness may be absent or difficult to detect, and the infant may only appear slow or inactive, or be irritable, have vomiting, or be feeding poorly. As the disease progresses, patients of any age may have seizures. HOW IS MENINGITIS DIAGNOSED?
Early diagnosis and treatment are very important. If symptoms occur, the patient should see a doctor immediately. The diagnosis is usually made by growing bacteria from a sample of spinal fluid. The spinal fluid is obtained by performing a spinal tap, in which a needle is inserted into an area in the lower back where fluid in the spinal canal is readily accessible. Identification of the type of bacteria responsible is important for selection of correct antibiotics. CAN MENINGITIS BE TREATED?
