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.[] viral encephalitis A86 Unspecified viral encephalitis A87 Viral meningitis A87.0 Enteroviral meningitis A87.1 Adenoviral meningitis A87.2 Lymphocytic choriomeningitis A87.8[] rigidity Other symptoms – malaise, retro-orbital headache, photophobia, weakness, anorexia, nausea, light-headedness, and sore throat Symptoms usually improve within 5 days[]

  • Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever

    […] encephalitis, tuberculous meningitis, air embolism, and rarely mucopolysaccharidoses. 8 We suggest that in cases of encephalitis with MRI consistent with the starry sky pattern[] Meningitis has prominent neurological signs. Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) presents with a petechial rash.[] Similarly, multiple T2 hyperintense foci in similar distribution without associated DWI changes can be seen in such etiologies as Lyme disease, cryptococcus, neurocysticercosis, viral[]

  • Leptospiral Meningitis

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

  • 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[] However, this appears not to be rigorously applied. Epidemiology It is very rare and the literature is very limited.[] 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.[]

  • Viral Meningitis

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

  • Chemical Meningitis

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

  • Bacterial Meningitis

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

  • Brain Abscess

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

  • 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.[] Chronic Lyme Disease The clinical presence of a chronic form of neuroborreliosis subsequent to classic verified objective manifestations and rigorous antibiotic management[] 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[]

  • Syphilitic Meningitis

    NIH: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) collection (Medical Encyclopedia) Cerebrospinal fluid culture (Medical Encyclopedia[] The reaction increases the person's body temperature, decreases the overall blood pressure (both systolic and diastolic levels), and results in leukopenia and rigors in the[] DRG Group #097-099 - Non-bacterial infect of nervous system except viral meningitis with CC.[]
