92 Possible Causes for Bacterial Meningitis, Papilledema, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Brain Abscess

    Abstract Brain abscesses are uncommon complications of bacterial meningitis or sepsis in neonates and infants.[] He presented with fever, worsening headache and papilledema. An urgent magnetic resonance image (MRI) showed an occipital abscess with midline shift.[] 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.[] Abstract Cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) is a severe multifactorial condition with various clinical manifestations that may include headache, papilledema, seizures, focal[] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[]

  • Intracranial Sinus Thrombosis

    Its incidence is comparable to that of acute bacterial meningitis in adults.[] Mention the differential diagnosis for papilledema e. Discuss the differentiating factors between true papilledema and pseudopapilledema 3.[] Even in patients with no evidence of systemic thrombosis, but who have sagittal sinus thrombosis, the possibility of dislodging pulmonary emboli should be strongly considered[]

  • 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.[] […] the pathogenesis of the disease remains controversial, recent case series of transverse sinus stenting have reported very high rates of symptom response and resolution of papilledema[] […] with recanalization of the cortical vein but a patent superior sagittal sinus.[]

  • Cerebral Vein Thrombosis

    Infections: bacterial meningitis, sinusitis, mastoiditis, Lemierre syndrome (jugular vein septic phlebitis) Genetic prothrombotic disorders: factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin[] Check for papilledema in cases presenting with headache. Look for potential risk factors of CVT.[] Cerebral vein thrombosis, also called superior sagittal sinus thrombosis, is a well recognized clinical and radiologic entity associated with a variety of medical disorders[]

  • 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.[] SAGITTAL SINUS.[] Patients with immunocompromise, papilledema, preexisting CNS disease, new onset seizures, altered level of consciousness, and focal neurological findings should have a head[]

  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    Thrombosis of the lateral sinus (related to mastoiditis ) and thrombosis of the superior sagittal sinus (related to bacterial meningitis ) occur but are rarer than cavernous[] The list of complications provided in an article by Mueller regarding internal jugular vein thrombosis included pulmonary embolism, subclavian vein and superior sagittal sinus[] Cerebral spinal fluid demonstrated pleocytosis of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and decreased glucose level, which suggested bacterial meningitis.[]

  • Cerebral Venous Sinus Disorder

    Infections: bacterial meningitis, sinusitis, mastoiditis, Lemierre syndrome (jugular vein septic phlebitis) Genetic prothrombotic disorders: factor V Leiden mutation, prothrombin[] Condition or disease Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis CSF Pressure Increased Papilledema Layout table for study information Study Type : Observational Estimated Enrollment[] […] and 23 (46%) patients had superficial system (superior sagittal sinus) thrombosis.[]

  • Meningeal Disorder

    Vaccines have dramatically reduced the incidence of bacterial meningitis. Fast facts on bacterial meningitis Here are some facts about bacterial meningitis.[] An elevation and blurring of the optic disk margin (papilledema) may occur due to increased pressure in the subarachnoid space along the optic nerve.[] PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI Defective resorption of CSF into the superior sagittal sinus due to sinovenous thrombosis accounts for some cases of the syndrome of pseudotumor cerebri[]
