Central Nervous System Bacterial Meningitis

Mohammed, Asmaa (2019-04-16)

Meningitis is a severe acute infectious disease caused by several microorganisms, including viruses, bacteria, parasites, and fungi. Fatality rates associated with this disease can be as low as 2% in infants and children, and as high as 20– 30% in neonates and adults. Transient or permanent deafness, or other neurological sequelae, arise in up to a third of survivors. Since their advent, antimicrobial agents have had a profound effect on the clinical course and prognosis of meningitis
