  • Chronic Otitis Media

    Intracranial air is usually asymptomatic but carries a potential risk of increased intracranial pressure or meningitis which require immediate therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] coexistence of complications of COM in the same case is a rare situation, and the present report describes a case with mastoiditis, Bezold abscess, lateral sinus thrombophlebitis, meningitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The need of opening of the inner ear creates potential routes of spread of infection to subarachnoid spaces and lead to meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pneumococcal Pneumonia

    Abstract An extended-spectrum cephalosporin has been considered appropriate therapy for non-meningeal infections caused by drug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Mortality rates from all-cause pneumonia and meningitis were highest in the oldest age groups.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bacterial meningitis: Pneumococcal meningitis infections cause more than 50% of all bacterial meningitis cases in the U.S.[health.ny.gov]
