search health books site map
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

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

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.

Is there any treatment?
What is the prognosis? What research is being done? ... Additional resources from MEDLINEplus What is Encephalitis and Meningitis? Encephalitis is an inflammation of the brain. There are many types of encephalitis, most of which are caused by viral infection. Symptoms include sudden fever, headache, vomiting, photophobia (abnormal visual sensitivity to light), stiff neck and back, confusion, drowsiness, clumsiness, unsteady gait, and irritability. Symptoms that require emergency treatment include loss of consciousness, poor responsiveness, seizures, muscle weakness, sudden severe dementia, memory loss, withdrawal from social interaction, and impaired judgement. Meningitis is an infection of the membranes (called meninges) that surround the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms, which may appear suddenly, often include high fever, severe and persistent headache, stiff neck, nausea, and vomiting. Changes in behavior such as confusion, sleepiness, and difficulty waking up are extremely important symptoms and may require emergency treatment. In infants symptoms of meningitis may include irritability or tiredness, poor feeding and fever. Meningitis may be caused by many different viruses and bacteria. Viral meningitis cases are usually self-limited to 10 days or less. Some types of meningitis can be deadly if not treated promptly. Anyone experiencing symptoms of meningitis or encephalitis should see a doctor immediately.

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?
