75 Possible Causes for Bacterial Meningitis, Dysarthria, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    CONCLUSION: Delayed cerebral thrombosis is a rare but devastating complication of bacterial meningitis.[] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[] To report an unusual clinical course in 6 patients with community-acquired acute bacterial meningitis and to compare clinical features with cases reported in the literature[]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    Is bacterial meningitis contagious? Yes.[] Early complications of bacterial meningitis include seizures, raised intracranial pressure (seen in the image below), cerebral venous thrombosis, sagittal sinus thrombosis[] sinus thrombosis, and hydrocephalus.[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) can be seen with some viral encephalitis, particularly HSV but is a rare complication of bacterial meningitis.[] Case Description: A 53-year-old male patient suddenly developed severe headache associated with dysarthria and an altered state of consciousness.[] […] with recanalization of the cortical vein but a patent superior sagittal sinus.[]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Pneumococcal meningitis is a bacterial inflammation of the meninges. It is potentially fatal with increased incidence of mortality in the very young and in the elderly.[] This mutism changed into dysarthria and finally into normal speech. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed lesions in both cerebellar hemispheres, suggesting cerebellitis.[] SAGITTAL SINUS.[]

  • Frontal Sinusitis

  • Brain Abscess

    Abstract Brain abscesses are uncommon complications of bacterial meningitis or sepsis in neonates and infants.[] Securities symptoms are disorders of muscle tone on the side of the brain abscess, and sometimes observed speech disorder in the form of dysarthria.[] The patient was treated for bacterial meningitis with a 4-week course of intravenous penicillin (24 10 6 IU/d) and chloramphenicol (4 g/d).[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Spinal tap is indicated only if there is a serious suspicion of bacterial meningitis.[] Dysarthria & dysphagia may occur. There are no Babinski signs until late in the evolution of the hemorrhage as it expands to the brainstem.[] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[]

  • Brain Stem Infarction
