  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    Age, seizures and shock signs were independently associated with mortality.[] A suspected case of meningococcal meningitis was diagnosed in a 24-year-old sailor onboard an aircraft carrier at sea in 2003.[] […] of incidence, carriage and case-carrier ratios for meningococcal meningitis in the African meningitis belt and describe their variations across the endemic, hyperendemic[]

  • Meningitis

    We report a rare case of large frontal sinus osteoma with intracranial extension, associated with meningitis and the development of seizures.[] Proportion of meningococcal carriers and high‐risk persons who were culture‐negative at end of follow‐up. Occurrence of relapse and re‐colonisation.[] Patient has remained seizure free.[]

  • Meningococcal Carrier

    Other signs and symptoms Acute fever and chills Headache Neck stiffness Low back and thigh pain Nausea and vomiting Confusion or unconsciousness Epileptic fits (seizures)[] Abstract A survey of the meningococcal carrier rate was conducted in the Nsukka area (eastern Nigeria) during an interepidemic period.[] Abstract An epidemiological study was carried out to determine meningococcal carrier state amongst recruits of a military training centre. 360 recruits with divergent socioeconomic[]

  • Bacterial Encephalitis

    seizures, 13% for patients with bacterial meningitis and early seizures, and 2.4% for patients with bacterial meningitis without early seizures.[] It can be spread by droplets coughed or sneezed out by an infected person or by a carrier; many outbreaks of meningococcal infection occur in people living in close quarters[] She is a clinical epileptologist with 15 years’ experience with epilepsy basic research using a variety of animal models and particularly models of early life seizures and[]

  • AIDS-associated Meningoencephalitis

    Seizures.[] At any one time, about 10 to 25 per cent of the population are carriers. Meningococcal Septicaemia Some bacteria that cause meningitis can also cause septicaemia.[] Anticonvulsants might be given to a child having seizures. Over-the-counter (OTC) medicines, like acetaminophen, can help with fever and headaches.[]

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    Abstract A 12-month-old girl with occult bacterial meningitis presented with a simple febrile seizure.[] About 1 in 10 people carry meningococcal bacteria in their nose or throat but don’t get sick from it; these carriers can still transmit the bacteria without knowing it. ([] Patients with the risk genotype (rs10157763, AA) presented with low scores on the Glasgow Coma Scale and high rate of epileptic seizures.[]

    A 9-year-old girl presented to the emergency department with loss of consciousness and a seizure. She had returned from a trip to Puerto Rico 3 weeks earlier.[] It can be spread by droplets coughed or sneezed out by an infected person or by a carrier; many outbreaks of meningococcal infection occur in people living in close quarters[] […] protective and nourishing fluid that circulates around the brain and spinal cord -- which leads to accumulation of CSF in the brain and thus severe complications such as seizures[]

  • Hemophilus Meningitis

    Clinical manifestations include fever; nuchal rigidity; photophobia; seizures; hearing loss, sensorineural; coma; and cerebrovascular thrombosis.[] […] disease can occur at any age, its incidence is highest in infants, adolescents and young adults.9 Adolescents and young adults are the primary carriers of meningococcal bacteria[] Seizure management Treat seizures in the setting of meningitis immediately with benzodiazepines and load with phenytoin (20mg/kg over one hour).[]

  • Tetanus

    The infant recovered, with no seizures by the 16th day from admission, and was off the ventilator by the 18th day.[] CONCLUSION: The characteristics of the T-cell response upon a TT-carrier vaccination suggests effective T-cell help towards B-cells in response to meningococcal polysaccharides[] Seizures may occur, and the autonomic nervous system may also be affected. Symptoms and Diagnosis Tetanus is a clinical syndrome without confirmatory laboratory tests.[]
