18 Possible Causes for Bacterial Meningitis, Dysphasia and Aphasia, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Brain Abscess

    Abstract Brain abscesses are uncommon complications of bacterial meningitis or sepsis in neonates and infants.[] Seven cases presented with difficulty in speech in the form of sensory dysphasia or pure nominal aphasia.[] 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).[]

  • 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[]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    Subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) can be seen with some viral encephalitis, particularly HSV but is a rare complication of bacterial meningitis.[] […] with recanalization of the cortical vein but a patent superior sagittal sinus.[] Other diagnostic possibilities include: pseudo-subarachnoid hemorrhage bacterial meningitis tuberculous meningitis granulomatous meningitis neurosarcoidosis[]

  • Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

    Infections: bacterial meningitis, sinusitis, mastoiditis, Lemierre syndrome (jugular vein septic phlebitis) Genetic prothrombotic disorders: factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin[] Subsequent computed tomography and magnetic resonance venography confirmed a superior sagittal sinus thrombosis.[] Bacterial meningitis as a coexistent condition should be considered in these cases.[]

  • Cerebral Malaria

    CM, cerebral' malaria; ABM, acute bacterial meningitis.[] We report the first case of cerebral malaria due to Plasmodium vivax in Latin America, complicated with sagittal sinus thrombosis and confirmed by a molecular method.[] meningitis?[]

  • Encephalitis

    Individuals with encephalitis or bacterial meningitis are usually hospitalized for treatment.[] , dysphasia,), hemiparesis and seizures.[] MRI can also exclude lesions that mimic viral encephalitis (eg, brain abscess, sagittal sinus thrombosis).[]

  • Subdural Empyema

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the occurrence, treatment, and outcome of subdural empyema complicating community-acquired bacterial meningitis in adults.[] Clues to the involved areas can be (a) contralateral paresis or seizures, (b) aphasia or dysphasia associated with left-sided infection, or (c) cranial neuropathies ( 32 ,[] Dural attachments, especially at sutures, and the sagittal sinus contain the infection.[]

  • Intracerebral Hematoma

    Spinal tap is indicated only if there is a serious suspicion of bacterial meningitis.[] […] or dysphasia Gait abnormalities Neck stiffness etc.[] Intracranial hematoma secondary to superior sagittal sinus thrombosis is a well described, but rare event.[]

  • Intracranial Abscess

    Bacterial Meningitis Bacterial meningitis is the infection of the arachnoid membrane, subarachnoid space, and cerebrospinal fluid by bacteria.[] Seven cases presented with difficulty in speech in the form of sensory dysphasia or pure nominal aphasia.[] sinus thrombosis, have been reported to be 3.7%–24%, [2], [3] while mortality and morbidity rates have been reported to be 25% and 10%, respectively. [4] Purpose In this[]

  • Cerebellar Infarction

    meningitis and encephalitis, myasthenic crisis and severe Guillan Barre syndrome.[] […] present In extreme cases, there may be considerable swelling of the hemisphere, leading to drowsiness, stupor, and coma Anterior branch occlusion leads to an expressive dysphasia[] These are typically seen in parasagittal structures (following sagittal sinus thrombosis), temporoparietal regions (transverse / sigmoid sinus thrombi), or deep structures[]
