Bacterial meningitis in children and adults
Changes in community-acquired disease may affect patient care
Elizabeth J. Phillips, MD, FRCPC Andrew E. Simor, MD, FRCPC VOL 103 / NO 3 / MARCH 1998 / POSTGRADUATE MEDICINE This page is best viewed with a browser that supports tables This is the first of three articles on CNS Infections Preview : Bacterial infection is among the most common of the many causes of meningitis; in the United States, about 6,000 cases of community-acquired bacterial meningitis occur each year. The disease is of special concern because consequences are potentially devastating and because isolates with reduced susceptibility to penicillin are found in increasing and alarming numbers. This article summarizes current knowledge about development, epidemiology, investigation, management, and prevention of bacterial meningitis. M eningitis is inflammation of the meninges, the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord, and it is characterized by pleocytosis. In the past few years, significant advances have been made in understanding the pathophysiology of bacterial meningitis and in developing approaches to management. Despite these developments, bacterial meningitis remains an important source of morbidity and mortality. This article focuses on community-acquired infection, as opposed to hospital-acquired or postoperative infection, and on the disease in children and adults. (Meningitis in newborns and immunocompromised patients is not discussed in detail.)

Meningitis Viral
Meningitis significa inflamación de las membranas que cubren el cerebro y la médula espinal.
La meningitis viral es una condición común, raramente fatal generalmente causada por ciertos virus. Afortunadamente, la mayoría de las personas expuestas a estos virus no experimentan síntomas o síntomas leves sin meningitis.

Cualquier persona puede adquirir meningitis viral . La enfermedad es más común en niños y jóvenes.

¿Cómo se transmite el virus?

Debido a que varios virus diferentes pueden causar meningitis viral, la manera en que el virus se esparce depende de el tipo de virus implicado. Los virus más comunes entran por la boca, se multiplican en el cuerpo y son excretados por la excreta. Las manos sin lavar entonces pueden llevar el virus y transmitirlo a otra persona (esto se llama la transmisión fecal-oral).

Los virus que causan comúnmente meningitis viral se puede transmitir por semanas después de la infección.

Meningococcal Disease It is important that college students consider vaccination to reduce the risk for potentially fatal meningococcal disease. Studies have shown that college students who live in residence halls or dormitories have a slightly higher risk of meningococcal disease . Maryland law requires that students enrolled at the Johns Hopkins University who live in the dormitories or residence halls be vaccinated for this disease. Students may be exempt from this requirement if a waiver has been signed after reviewing the risks associated with meningococcal disease and the effectiveness of the vaccine. If the individual is under 18 years of age, the individual's parents or legal guardian may sign the waiver after reviewing the appropriate information and making an informed decision.

Meningitis is an inflammation of the membranes (called meninges) that surround the brain and spinal cord.
How do you get Meningitis?
  • Meningitis may be caused by many different viruses and bacteria, or by diseases that cause inflammation of tissues of the body without infection.
    In meningococcal meningitis, (also known as cerebrospinal fever and spotted fever), the symptoms may appear suddenly causing widespread infection and blood poisoning (septicaemia), and can be rapidly fatal if not diagnosed and treated promptly in hospital
    In meningococcal meningitis, there can be a characteristic rash of red or brownish pin prick spots caused by blood under the skin (haemorrhagic rash) which can develop into purple bruises and blood blisters.
    GLASS TUMBLER TEST FOR HAEMORRHAGIC RASH - If a glass tumbler is pressed firmly against this haemorrhagic rash, the rash will not fade, it will remain visible through the glass. If this happens you should seek medical advice immediately.

How is it transmitted?
What are the symptoms of viral meningitis? Your child was recently diagnosed with viral meningitis. This infection causes swelling of the lining of the brain. Your child may have symptoms such as fever, headache, neck pain or stiffness, pain when looking at bright lights, nausea, vomiting, poor appetite, tiredness and sleepiness. The virus may also infect other parts of the body and cause symptoms such as skin rash, runny nose, sore throat, ear ache, cough, difficulty breathing and diarrhea. Let your doctor know if your child has any of these symptoms. How is it diagnosed? not effective against viral meningitis. If your child has mild symptoms from viral meningitis, and is doing well at home, the doctor will not admit him or her to hospital. However, if your child is quite sick from the viral infection (especially young infants), the doctor may hospitalize your child temporarily for further care until he or she is better. Occasionally, a doctor is unable to distinguish viral and bacterial meningitis on the basis of the test results. This may be because your child was taking an oral antibiotic before the spinal tap was completed. An antibiotic does not prevent the meningitis from happening but can make the spinal fluid results confusing. Some viral infections can also give spinal fluid results that falsely resemble bacterial meningitis. In that case, your doctor may decide to hospitalize your child and start intravenous antibiotic(s) while waiting for other test results. If the diagnosis of viral meningitis becomes apparent in the next several days, the antibiotic(s) will be stopped. Sometimes this involves repeating the spinal tap in one or two days.

Cryptococcal Meningitis
November 2004 View PDF (Spanish Translation) Table of Contents How can I tell if I have cryptococcal meningitis? How to treat It? Mild cryptococcal meningitis Moderate to severe cryptococcal meningitis ... The bottom line Cryptococcal meningitis (crip-toe-CAWK-kull men-in-JYE-tis) is an inflammation and swelling of the brain and spinal cord tissues, caused by a fungus called Cryptococcus neoformans . This inflammation is dangerous and leads to death in nearly all people who are not treated. Treatments do exist, however, and are quite effective. Cryptococcal meningitis is not very common. It is rare in people with CD4+ cell counts above 100. When it does occur, it typically strikes in people with compromised immune systems, usually when CD4+ cell counts falls below 50. It does also occur, though rarely, in people who are otherwise healthy and not living with HIV. The fungus that causes cryptococcal meningitis is common in dirt and dust, especially in dirt containing bird droppings. People are normally infected when they breathe in dirt that contains the organism Cryptococcus . In healthy individuals, this infection is usually contained in the lungs and never causes disease. Scientists believe that most cases of cryptococcal disease are caused by a reactivation of previous infection rather than a new infection. However, it is wise for people living with HIV to avoid bird roosts and other places where they may come into contact with large amounts of bird droppings.

There are many different bacteria and viruses that can cause meningitis . In most instances, it is more common for these viruses or bacteria to cause some other illness, such as an ear infection, pneumonia or other illness. It is not known why one individual develops meningitis when others exposed to the same virus or bacteria don't get as sick, or don't get sick at all.

a Simple Facts Sheet from the AIDS Treatment Data Network cryptococcal meningitis Cryptococcal meningitis is a brain infection caused by a fungus called cryptococcus neoformans, which is found mainly in dirt and bird droppings. Many people have been exposed to the cryptococcus fungus at some time during their lives, but the immune system usually stops the fungus from causing illness. When the immune system is weakened by HIV, the fungus can cause illness. The most common illness caused by the cryptococcus fungus is cryptococcal meningitis. Meningitis means swelling of the meninges. The meninges are membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. Cryptococcal meningitis is a serious infection. The symptoms can be similar to other conditions, but it is important to be aware of the possibility of cryptococcal meningitis. Watch for fever, vomiting, headache, nausea, fatigue, loss of appetite, and a general feeling of not being well. Sometimes symptoms include a stiff neck and seizures. You may experience all or just a few of these symptoms. The standard treatment for cryptococcal meningitis is amphotericin B , which must be given by intravenous injection. This is usually done in hospital until the infection is brought under control - this part of the treatment is called induction treatment and usually takes less than two weeks. The doctor checks the spinal fluid using a procedure called a spinal tap, and measures what's known as the cryptococcal titer to see if the infection is under control.

Avoiding Meningitis
Barbara Cooke
Need another reason to lecture your teen about keeping partying to a minimum? Researchers have now linked smoking, second-hand smoke, and binge drinking to an increased chance of contracting deadly bacterial meningitis. Meningococcal disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year and is responsible for approximately 300 deaths annually. During the past decade, the number of bacterial meningitis cases among adolescents ages15 to 24 has doubled to 600 each year. It is estimated that 100 to 125 cases occur annually on college campuses, and 5 to 15 students die as a result. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that certain groups of college students had six times the risk of contracting the potentially fatal bacterial infection. What did these students have in common? Many lived in dormitories on campus, were vulnerable to upper respiratory infections, and were exposed to passive and active smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. What is meningitis?

Although the disease can be contagious, transmission generally requires close contact such as kissing or sharing a drinking glass. As a result, classmates, teachers and other school staff who may have come in contact with an infected child are not likely to catch the disease. Teachers and other staff also are not likely to develop meningitis as a result of infection by the haemophilus influenza type B (Hib) bacteria or by infection with one of the several viruses that can cause meningitis. Hib infection primarily strikes children who are three months to three years of age. Viral meningitis usually occurs as an isolated case rather than spreading among contacts of the infected individual. Because school staff worry about the health of their students and are concerned about the possibility that meningitis could spread through the school, the UFT has prepared this pamphlet to provide answers to the most frequently asked questions.

Student Health and Welfare
Freshers and meningitis
Any student entering higher education for the first time should have been vaccinated against meningitis C, ideally before coming to the University. This applies to all freshers, regardless of age . If you have not already been immunised before arrival, this can be done by your college doctor. It is important to remember that this vaccination only gives protection against the group C strain of meningitis, which used to account for 40% of all meningitis cases in students. You should be vigilant for the signs and symptoms of the group B strain of meningitis.
Vital signs
The symptoms of meningitis and septicaemia are:
  • High temperature or fever
  • Being violently sick
  • Severe headache
  • Neck stiffness (can't touch your chin to your chest)
  • Joint or muscle pains
  • Feeling drowsy or lethargic
  • Confusion or disorientation
  • Rapid deterioration of health
  • Rash of tiny red/purple pin prick spots, which may spread to look like fresh bruising.
