  • Cavernous Sinus Thrombosis

    Sagittal sinus thromboses are usually caused by bacterial meningitis.[symptoma.com] Cavernous sinuses are covered in the dura between the layers of the meninges and the periosteum.[symptoma.com] These include identification of the primary route of infection, sepsis, visual defect, pupillary dysfunction and features of meningismus (photophobia and nuchal rigidity).[symptoma.com]

  • Mollaret's Meningitis

    Mollaret's meningitis (benign recurrent aseptic meningitis) is a rare syndrome with characteristic features.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] , fever, meningismus and various neurological deficits that last for a few days in a self-limiting fashion.[symptoma.com] Here we present an atypical case of mollaret’s meningitis in which the patient presented with headache and meningismus in the absence of fever.[ojhas.org]
