73 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Culture Negative, Hyponatremia, Viral Meningitis

  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

    The combination of fever, headache, myalgias, marked left shift in the differential white blood cell count, severe thrombocytopenia, and hyponatremia all help to suggest the[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] encephalitis, tuberculous meningitis, air embolism, and rarely mucopolysaccharidoses. 8 We suggest that in cases of encephalitis with MRI consistent with the starry sky pattern[neurology.org] Laboratory evaluation may demonstrate hyponatremia, anemia, thrombocytopenia, abnormal liver enzymes, and elevated coagulation tests.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis

    Cultures of cerebrospinal fluid and multiple blood specimens were negative, and tests for West Nile, herpes simplex, and influenza viruses were negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Primary amebic meningoencephalitis presents clinically in a fashion that may be indistinguishable from bacterial and viral meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination indicated pleocytosis with predominance of neutrophils, low sugar and high protein.[pjms.com.pk]

  • Viral Meningitis

    Negative cerebrospinal fluid cultures occur in 20 percent of patients with acute community acquired bacterial meningitis.[dx.doi.org] Fluid restriction, diuretics, and, rarely, hypertonic saline infusion may be used to correct the hyponatremia.[emedicine.medscape.com] Definition Viral meningitis is a viral disease characterized by inflammation of the meninges.[symptoma.com]

  • Bacterial Meningitis

    Blood culture for the etiological agent may be positive even when the cerebrospinal fluid culture is negative.[symptoma.com] You therefore cannot say that bacterial meningitis is worse than viral meningitis.[biology.stackexchange.com] Accurate diagnosis of bacterial meningitis (BM) relies on cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) Gram staining and bacterial culture, which often present high false-negative rates because[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
