75 Possible Causes for Meningitis, Prominent Sulci

  • Meningoencephalitis

    BACKGROUND: The term "aseptic meningitis" encompasses cases of meningitis with negative bacterial CSF culture, which predominantly are of viral etiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] MRI of the brain showed some effacement of cortical sulci, rendering the vessels prominent, with increased T2-weighted signal diffusely scattered throughout both hemispheres[academic.oup.com] BACKGROUND: Acanthamoeba spp. are free-living ubiquitous protozoans capable of causing Acanthamoeba meningitis/meningoencephalitis (AME) of the central nervous system in humans[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Leptomeningeal Metastasis

    Carcinomatosis/metabolism Meningeal Carcinomatosis/mortality Meningeal Carcinomatosis/secondary* Middle Aged Neoplasm Staging Proportional Hazards Models Receptor, ErbB-2[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The lesions were more prominent in the cerebellar sulci compared with in the cerebral sulci.[ajnr.org] The brain and the spinal cord are enveloped by distinct tissues referred to as meninges.[symptoma.com]

  • AIDS-associated Meningoencephalitis

    Description Meningitis, or spinal meningitis, is an inflammation of the meninges, the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord.[health24.com] MRI of the brain showed some effacement of cortical sulci, rendering the vessels prominent, with increased T2-weighted signal diffusely scattered throughout both hemispheres[cid.oxfordjournals.org] Viral meningitis is more common and usually more benign than bacterial meningitis but all cases of suspected meningitis should be managed as though having bacterial meningitis[patient.info]

  • Cryptococcosis

    What Causes Meningitis?[webmd.com] Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain showed mild prominent cortical sulci with dilation of lateral ventricles suggestive of meningitis sequel.[turkjpath.org] CASE REPORT Here, we report the case of a 52-year-old HIV-1-infected man with disseminated cryptococcosis, including subacute meningitis, pulmonary, and cutaneous cryptococcosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Amebic Meningoencephalitis

    Primary amebic meningoencephalitis presents clinically in a fashion that may be indistinguishable from bacterial and viral meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT head showed prominent sulci suggestive of cerebral atrophy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Infection with this organism closely mimics and is often mistaken for a bacterial or a viral pyogenic meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Coccidioidomycosis

    Meningitis is the most serious and lethal complication of disseminated disease.[vfce.arizona.edu] […] pulmonary vascularity; increased heart size suggesting diffuse chamber enlargement and/or pericardial effusion; blunting of the right and left costophrenic sulci with pleural[hcplive.com] […] from tuberculous meningitis and cryptococcal meningitis, especially if cryptococcal antigen is negative.[life-worldwide.org]

  • Neurosyphilis

    To report two patients presenting with acute unilateral peripheral vestibulopathy due to syphilitic basal meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Holland et al reported the CT scan findings in 3 patients with meningovascular syphilis. [2] Less prominence of the cortical sulci in our first case suggested cortical atrophy[ijdvl.com] Also, there was a marked diffuse cortical atrophy, more accentuated fronto-temporo-insular, with the enlargement of the sulci, of the anterior interemispheric fissure and[tmj.ro]

  • Communicating Hydrocephalus

    A leptomeningeal biopsy performed at the side of catheter placement (far away from any meningeal enhancement revealed by magnetic resonance imaging) showed chronic meningitis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] CT and MRI reveal bilateral extracerebral fluid collections, prominent sulci, normal ventricles, and no evidence of compression of the brain.[thamburaj.com] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu]

  • Obstructive Hydrocephalus

    The diagnosis of cryptococcal meningitis was obtained later on by simultaneous plasma and CSF Cryptococcus antigen detection.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Pre-contrast axial CT Sulci and gyri are very prominent due to cortical atrophy, unlike in obstructive hydrocephalus where there is effacement of sulci and gyri.[stritch.luc.edu] We report the case of a 6-month-old boy with an unusual presentation of acute obstructive hydrocephalus owing to Pseudomonas meningitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Traumatic Pneumocephalus

    The overall rate of meningitis was 20.1% and the rates of meningitis in the two groups were not significantly different.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Figure 3 Air bubbles are noted within the frontal subdural, sub arachnoid spaces, sulci of cerebral cortex and ventricles.[ispub.com] One of such potentially serious diseases is post-traumatic meningitis.[isrctn.com]
