154 Possible Causes for Cerebrospinal Fluid Culture Negative, Seizure, Viral Meningitis

  • 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] Many people have Auras before seizures, which is like warning signs that a seizure is most likely coming on.[honeycomb.click] 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] The single distinguishing element between the 2 diagnoses is the altered state of consciousness, focal deficits, and seizures found in encephalitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Definition Viral meningitis is a viral disease characterized by inflammation of the meninges.[symptoma.com]

All cerebrospinal fluid cultures, stains, and serologies were repeated and were negative.[pmj.bmj.com] The patient presented with generalized seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] As in viral meningitis, procalcitonin might be able to discriminate between bacterial and chemical causes of CNS inflammation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • 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] […] describe a child whose first manifestation of Lyme disease was an acute, focal meningoencephalitis with signs and symptoms such as fever, headache, slurred speech, hemiparesis, seizure[pediatrics.aappublications.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]

  • 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] The symptoms include headache, nausea, rigidity of the neck muscles, vomiting, delirium, seizures and coma. primary amebic menencephalitis naegleriasis amebic encephalitis[wikidata.org] Primary amebic meningoencephalitis presents clinically in a fashion that may be indistinguishable from bacterial and viral meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningitis

    Negative cerebrospinal fluid cultures occur in 11 to 30 percent of patients with bacterial meningitis. 4-23 No significant differences in clinical presentation have been reported[doi.org] We report a rare case of large frontal sinus osteoma with intracranial extension, associated with meningitis and the development of seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To learn more about how we use cookies, please see our cookies policy Close Intended for healthcare professionals Education Viral meningitis Viral meningitis Clinical Review[doi.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] Altered sensorium and seizures herald a worse prognosis.[pmj.bmj.com] DRG Group #097-099 - Non-bacterial infect of nervous system except viral meningitis with CC.[icd.codes]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    When LM occurs, signs and symptoms include headache, nausea, vomiting, lumbar back pain, and stiff or painful neck; LM also may lead to mental disturbances and seizures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] After 3 lumber punctures (and a misdiagnosis of Viral Meningitis) they found Malignant cells in her cerebral fluid and sent back to her team in Edinburgh.[inspire.com] Symptoms including confusion, seizures, pain and paralysis may be a result of either metastases to the nervous system or one of several nonmetastatic complications of cancer[books.google.com]

  • Syphilitic Meningitis

    NIH: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke Cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) collection (Medical Encyclopedia) Cerebrospinal fluid culture (Medical Encyclopedia[icdlist.com] […] emergency number (such as 911) if you have seizures.[medlineplus.gov] DRG Group #097-099 - Non-bacterial infect of nervous system except viral meningitis with CC.[icd.codes]

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) presents with a petechial rash.[visualdx.com]
