122 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Culture Negative, Rigor, Viral Meningitis

  • Lymphocytic Choriomeningitis

    A high fever (101-104 F, 38.5-40 C) and rigor are the commonest symptoms. Physical findings are few, often influenza-like, and not strong enough for diagnosis.[web.archive.org] viral encephalitis A86 Unspecified viral encephalitis A87 Viral meningitis A87.0 Enteroviral meningitis A87.1 Adenoviral meningitis A87.2 Lymphocytic choriomeningitis A87.8[icd10data.com] rigidity Other symptoms – malaise, retro-orbital headache, photophobia, weakness, anorexia, nausea, light-headedness, and sore throat Symptoms usually improve within 5 days[arupconsult.com]

  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) presents with a petechial rash.[visualdx.com] Similarly, multiple T2 hyperintense foci in similar distribution without associated DWI changes can be seen in such etiologies as Lyme disease, cryptococcus, neurocysticercosis, viral[neurology.org]

  • Leptospiral Meningitis

    Thirty-nine cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from patients presenting with meningeal abnormalities, predominance of lymphocytes and negative results by traditional microbiological[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Fever started 7 days before admission and was not associated with rigors and chills.[atmph.org] DRG Group #097-099 - Non-bacterial infect of nervous system except viral meningitis with CC.[icd.codes]

  • Mollaret's Meningitis

    All patients with RLM ( 2 clinical episodes, lymphocytic predominance and negative bacterial culture from cerebrospinal fluid [CSF], and HSV-2 DNA in at least 1 CSF sample[wwwnc.cdc.gov] However, this appears not to be rigorously applied. Epidemiology It is very rare and the literature is very limited.[patient.info] If you have experienced viral meningitis more than once, we would encourage you to ask your GP to investigate it to try and determine the cause.[meningitisnow.org]

  • Viral Meningitis

    Negative cerebrospinal fluid cultures occur in 20 percent of patients with acute community acquired bacterial meningitis.[dx.doi.org] Symptom Sign Mechanism Chills, rigors Fever (T 38 ) Endogenous cytokines (released during the immune response to the invading pathogens) affect the thermoregulatory neurons[pathophys.org] Definition Viral meningitis is a viral disease characterized by inflammation of the meninges.[symptoma.com]

  • Chemical Meningitis

    The cerebrospinal fluid findings shown in table 1. All cerebrospinal fluid cultures, stains, and serologies were repeated and were negative.[pmj.bmj.com] Clinical Features • Fever, chills and rigor • Headache, nausea, vomiting • Seizures, cranial nerve palsies • Signs of meningeal irritation – Neck rigidity – Photophobia 13[slideshare.net] As in viral meningitis, procalcitonin might be able to discriminate between bacterial and chemical causes of CNS inflammation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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]

  • Brain Abscess

    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) study revealed neutrophil predominant pleocytosis, but both blood and CSF culture were negative.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Less than 5% of such cases are due to bacterial meningitis and the rest are due to viral (aseptic) meningitis (see viral infections).[neuropathology-web.org] Cultures of the blood and cerebrospinal fluid are usually negative.[pediatrics.aappublications.org]

  • Lyme Meningoencephalitis

    Gram’s stain and culture of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) were negative after 72 hours. An electrocardiogram revealed normal sinus rhythm with no PR prolongation.[healio.com] Chronic Lyme Disease The clinical presence of a chronic form of neuroborreliosis subsequent to classic verified objective manifestations and rigorous antibiotic management[ajnr.org] meningitis (VM) (all but 1 enterovirus); most of these children were 3 months old and had lumbar punctures as part of a “sepsis work-up”. 10 VM patients were 2.5 years old[nature.com]
