Swelling inhibits the flow of blood and oxygen to brain tissue. The characteristic symptoms of meningitis are stiff neck, severe headache, and fever. The meninges are three ultrathin membranes that surround and protect the brain and a portion of the spinal cord: the outer membrane (dura mater), middle membrane (arachnoid), and inner membrane (pia mater). Types Meningitis is either infectious (contagious) or noninfectious. Infectious meningitis is classified as viral, bacterial, fungal, or parasitic, depending on the type of organism causing the infection.

Answers to questions about Meningitis
Q. How is bacterial meningitis different from other kinds of meningitis? A. Meningitis is an inflammation of the lining around the brain, caused by an infection. It can be caused by viruses and bacteria of various kinds.
  • Viral meningitis is rarely fatal and usually does not require antibiotics. It is also more easily transmitted. Many different viruses may cause viral meningitis.
  • Bacterial meningitis can be caused by many different organisms.
    • Streptococcus pneumoniae causes pneumococcal meningitis and is the leading cause of bacterial meningitis in the United States. Pneumococcal meningitis has a high fatality rate and occurs sporadically in infants, the elderly, and people with immunological disorders.
    • Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) causes a type of bacterial meningitis that is prevented by the Hib vaccination required for all children over 2 months of age. Widespread vaccinations have made Hib disease rare in children under 5. (In spite of the name, this disease is not related to "flu.")

Protest death sparks meningitis concern
Story Tools HEALTH LIBRARY Health Library Meningitis YOUR E-MAIL ALERTS Miami (Florida) Florida or Create your own Manage alerts What is this? MIAMI, Florida (AP) A volunteer medic who treated injured demonstrators at a free trade meeting last week died Wednesday of bacterial meningitis, sparking a health investigation to determine whether others were exposed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that no other cases had been confirmed. About 40 to 45 people who had close contact with the victim were given antibiotics, said CDC spokesman Llelwyn Grant. "We just don't know at this time how far-reaching this will be," Grant said. Neisseria meningitis, spread through respiratory droplets, can be fatal in up to 20 percent of all untreated cases, but the CDC spokesman said it probably would not be spread in a crowd simply through breathing. The meningitis victim, a 23-year-old New Jersey man, was not identified by authorities, but protest organizers said it was Jordan Feder. Feder treated protesters who had been sprayed with tear gas and pepper spray, his friend Patrick McKale said.

Meningitis C
The UK was the first country to introduce the meningitis C conjugate (MenC) vaccine. Since 1999, the MenC vaccine has been part of the routine childhood immunisation programme and uptake levels have been close to 90%. The programme, targeted at under-20 year olds, has been a huge success, with a 90% reduction in cases in that age group. However, young adults between 20 and 24 years of age and all first year college and university students are still at risk and should be vaccinated.

What is meningitis?
Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges, the membranes that surround the brain. There are three meninges, including the following:
  • dura mater - the outside membrane that adheres to the inside of the skull. arachnoid - the middle membrane. pia mater - the innermost membrane, which adheres to the brain.
What causes meningitis?
There are two distinct types of meningitis, each with different causes: viral - caused by a virus
  • Viral meningitis is more common than bacterial meningitis, although rarely life threatening. Viral meningitis can be caused by different viruses, and is spread between people by coughing or sneezing, or through poor hygiene. Other germs can be found in sewage polluted water.
    Viral meningitis cannot be helped by antibiotics. Recovery is normally complete, but headaches, fatigue, and depression may persist.
bacterial - caused by a bacterium
  • Bacterial meningitis, although rare, may be fatal.

What is septicemia?
Septicemia is the clinical name for blood poisoning. Fatality rates for septicemia are high around 20 percent. Septicemia is a medical emergency and needs urgent treatment. Septicemia, as it relates to meningitis:
Some bacteria that cause meningitis can also cause septicemia, particularly the meningococcal form.
  • About 80 percent of people who have a meningococcal infection have meningitis. The rest have septicemia, a serious infection of the bloodstream. Of the 80 percent who have meningococcal meningitis, around 55 percent have both meningitis and septicemia, leaving only 25 per cent suffering from meningitis alone.
When meningococcus invades the body, it enters from the throat, gets into the bloodstream, and travels through the blood to the meninges.
  • In some cases, the bacteria multiply uncontrollably in the bloodstream, which results in septicemia before the bacteria can infect the meninges. In other cases, infection in the bloodstream and in the meninges develops at the same time, and these patients get both septicemia and meningitis.

In den westlichen Industrienationen sind bestimmte Bakterien, die so genannten Meningokokken (Neisseria meningitidis), die häufigsten Auslöser dieser lebensbedrohlichen Infektionskrankheit. In der Bundesrepublik Deutschland werden jedes Jahr zwischen 700 und 800 Fälle von Meningokokken-Erkrankungen registriert, wobei besonders Kinder und Jugendliche vor dem zwanzigsten Lebensjahr betroffen sind. Weitere häufige Erreger der "klassischen", bakteriellen Meningitis sind Pneumokokken (Streptokokkus pneumoniae) und Haemophilus influenzae. Ihre Häufigkeit ist jedoch durch spezifische Impfprogramme in vielen Ländern deutlich zurückgegangen.

    Dorm freshmen at highest meningitis risk, CDC says
    June 1, 1999 Web posted at: 12:34 p.m. EDT (1634 GMT) From Medical Correspondent Rhonda Rowland PHILADELPHIA (CNN) College freshmen living in dormitories have a more than six times greater risk of bacterial meningitis than other college students, according to a new national study released Tuesday. The findings were reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at the annual meeting of the American College Health Association (ACHA). Bacterial meningitis inflames the tissue and fluid surrounding the brain and spinal canal and causes flu-like symptoms headache, stiff neck and fever.

    Meningitis WHAT IS MENINGITIS?
    Meningitis is an inflammation of the lining surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This condition can be caused by several different organisms such as bacteria and viruses. VIRAL MENINGITIS Is more common and usually occurs in the late Summer and early Fall. Sometimes, abdominal discomfort, chest pain, or a rash will be present. The central nervous system may be involved with possible alteration of consciousness or paralysis; however, these more serious conditions are infrequent. Most cases of viral meningitis run a short, uneventful course. Since this is a virus (like the common cold), antibiotics are not effective. Likewise, persons who have had contact with viral meningitis patients do not require any treatment. BACTERIAL MENINGITIS a rare disease, but can be very serious and requires treatment with antibiotics. It can occur sporadically throughout the year. The rest of this website is about bacterial meningitis.
