  • Enterococcus

    Enterococcus gallinarum meningitis (EGM) is rarely found in normal adults and even rarer in children. To our knowledge, EGM in neonate has not been reported previously.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Enterococcal post-surgical meningitis is an uncommon disease. 20 episodes of nosocomial post-surgical enterococcal meningitis diagnosed between 1994 and 2003 were retrospectively[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] During the period of study 20 cases of post-surgical enterococcal meningitis (60% female, mean age 55 18 y, range 16–78 y) were reviewed.[doi.org]

  • Meningitis

    Viral meningitis tends to run a more benign course than bacterial meningitis.[en.wikipedia.org] Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges.[symptoma.com] Bacterial meningitis is usually severe.[web.archive.org]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    The brain and the spinal cord are enveloped by distinct tissues referred to as meninges.[symptoma.com] Carcinomatosis/metabolism Meningeal Carcinomatosis/mortality Meningeal Carcinomatosis/secondary* Middle Aged Neoplasm Staging Proportional Hazards Models Receptor, ErbB-2[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The goal of treatment for LM is to relieve your symptoms and try to kill the cancer cells in your meninges and CSF.[mskcc.org]

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage

    KEYWORDS: Spinal cord; lumbar puncture; meningitis; schwannoma; subarachnoid hemorrhage[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Conclusion: SAH in meningitis could be explained by vasculitis or undetected ruptured mycotic aneurysm induced by acute inflammation from meningitis.[n.neurology.org] Tuberculosis in the central nervous system may present as tuberculoma and tuberculous meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Sinusitis

    Once the infection spreads over the cranial structure, it could infect the orbits, underlying bones, meninges, adjacent veins, and brain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other complications included the following: 16 epidural abscesses, 9 subdural empyemas, 15 meningitis cases, 3 intracerebral abscesses, 3 sinus thrombosis cases and 2 patients[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] None of the patients were immunocompromised or showed signs of meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
