126 Possible Causes for Bacterial Meningitis, Sagittal Sinus Thrombosis

  • Frontal Sinusitis

    Diffusion-weighted imaging in acute bacterial meningitis in infancy. Neuroradiology. 2003; 45(9):634-9. PubMed Google Scholar Nickerson JP, Richner B, Santy K and al.[panafrican-med-journal.com] Sometimes thrombophlebitis can develop causing superior sagittal sinus thrombosis and cavernous sinus thrombosis.[sites.google.com] […] meningitis, epidural empyema and abscess, venous sinus thrombosis (cavernous and sagittal), and intraparenchymal BA.[sinusitisunderstood.blogspot.com]

  • Osteomyelitis of the Frontal Bone

    Abstract Osteomyelitis of the frontal bone is becoming an increasingly rare complication of frontal sinusitis. We present seven cases that represent the largest series published in the last 50 years. Three cases were associated with intracranial involvement. Osteomyelitis should enter the differential diagnosis when[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Brain Abscess

    Abstract Brain abscesses are uncommon complications of bacterial meningitis or sepsis in neonates and infants.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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).[stroke.ahajournals.org] Doctors determined that bacterial meningitis and the abscess putting pressure on the young child’s brain were caused by a Salmonella infection.[foodpoisoningbulletin.com]

  • Sphenoid Sinusitis

    A 64-year-old woman was initially seen unconscious with bacterial meningitis and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) fistula.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fatal complications included cavernous sinus thrombosis and bacterial meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fatal complications included cavernous sinus thrombosis and bacterial meningitis. (N Engl J Med 1983; 309:1149–54.) Funding and Disclosures We are indebted to Mrs.[nejm.org]

  • Acute Sinusitis

    A lumbar puncture was performed for suspicion of meningitis but showed no bacterial growth.[scitechnol.com] Superior sagittal sinus thrombosis Orbital Cavernous sinus thrombosis Inflammatory edema and erythema (preseptal cellulitis) Orbital abscess Orbital cellulitis Subperiosteal[aafp.org] Antibiotic therapy is required in case of bacterial sinusitis only.[medicalguidelines.msf.org]

  • Cerebral Thrombosis

    CONCLUSION: Delayed cerebral thrombosis is a rare but devastating complication of bacterial meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , cerebral sinovenous thrombosis , dural sinus thrombosis , sagittal sinus thrombosis , and sinus thrombosis .[medlink.com] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Skull Fracture

    Antibiotics are often given prophylactically, although their role in preventing bacterial meningitis has not been established.[cochrane.org] BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Pulmonary embolus (PE) occurring concurrent with-and as a result of-traumatic superior sagittal sinus thrombosis (SSST) has never before been reported[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] A bacterial infection in the intracranial cavity can result in a life-threatening condition known as septic meningitis.[sportsmd.com]

  • Escherichia Coli Infection

    Acute bacterial meningitis The vast majority of neonatal meningitis cases are caused by E coli and group B streptococcal infections (28.5% and 34.1% overall, respectively)[emedicine.medscape.com] The thrombosis involved at least the sagittal sinus and the transverse sinus according to subsequent MRI scans.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In infants, E. coli infections are present in cases of infantile gastroenteritis and neonatal meningitis.[encyclopedia.com]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

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

  • Ethmoid Sinusitis

    In adults, however, the arachnoid forms a better barrier and bacterial meningitis rarely complicates SE (19).[sinusitisunderstood.blogspot.com] Serial brain MRIs showed cerebral venous infarct and thrombosis in the superior sagittal sinus (SSS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sagittal post-contrast image again demonstrating the cavernous sinus thrombosis with clot (arrow) and orbital extension of disease marked by the arrowheads.[uwmsk.org]
