About Meningitis
There are 2 types of meningitis, bacterial and viral. 
Meningitis is a serious illness which can be fatal or cause serious neurological damage as a result. Inflammation of the meninges or meningitis is also known for an important symptom of stiffness of the cervical region.  There is an impairment and painfulness when moving the chin to the chest. When passive flexion of the neck is attempted muscle spasms make the neck so rigid that the head and trunk may be lifted from the bed instead of the neck being flexed.

The disease is spread by droplet infection (cough, sneezing) or by symptomless carriers.

Diagnosis of Meningitis
It is essential to seek immediate medical attention if the symptoms of meningitis develop in order to determine whether the meningitis is viral or bacterial. Although this is a characteristic symptom, the diagnosis is difficult in the initial phase because of the resemblance with serious influenza. A lumbar puncture, or spinal tap, to obtain a sample of CSF diagnoses meningitis. The fluid is tested for the presence of bacteria and other cells, as well as certain chemical changes that are characteristic of meningitis.

A second form of meningococcal infection is blood poisoning called septicaemia which actually is more dangerous. Due to the toxins many body-functions become disrupted. Throughout the body many small blood clots (CIS) are formed causing a depletion of the blood coagulation factors and the appearance of small hemorrhages in the skin and organs (petechial rash seen on the skin). Within the first three days a petechial rash appears. Infection of one or more joints may occur. Conjunctivitis is common and adrenal failure occurs due to hemorrhages in the adrenal cortex. These symptoms can develop within a few hours. In 20 to 40% of cases it is fatal.

Bacterial Meningitis Causes

Note: Bacterial meningitis can be fatal if not treated promptly. Some children who survive the infection are left with permanent neurological impairments, such as hearing loss or learning disabilities.

Most Bacterial meningitis are caused by one of three species of bacteria:

  • Haemophilus influenzae
  • Neisseria meningitidis
  • Streptococcus pneumoniae
  • Many other bacteria, including Escherichia coli and the bacteria that are responsible for tuberculosis and syphilis, can also cause the disease.

  • Bacterial meningitis can be fatal if not treated promptly. Some children who survive the infection are left with permanent neurological impairments, such as hearing loss or learning disabilities.

Meningitis only develops if these microorganisms enter a person’s bloodstream and then the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), which surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The CSF contains no protective white blood cells to fight infection, so once the microorganisms enter the CSF, they multiply rapidly and make a person sick.

In fact, meningitis typically occurs in isolated cases. Occasionally outbreaks of meningitis caused by Neisseria meningitidis, also known as meningococcal meningitis, occur in group-living situations, such as day-care centers, college dormitories, or military barracks. A child whose immune system is weakened due to a disease or genetic disorder is at increased risk for developing meningitis.

Bacterial Meningitis Symptoms
Usually begin suddenly and rapidly get worse. Warning signs of bacterial meningitis are:

  • Fever
  • Nausea
  • Pain in the muscles, joints or limbs, such as in the legs or hands
  • Pale or blotchy skin and blue lips
  • Severe headache
  • Unusually cold hands and feet or shivering
  • General ill feeling

Viral Meningitis Symptoms
Viral meningitis is rarely fatal, and most people recover from the disease completely. Good hygiene to prevent the spread of viruses is the only method of preventing viral meningitis. The most common causes of viral meningitis are:

  • Coxsackie viruses
  • Echoviruses
  • Herpes viruses
  • Mumps virus
  • other viruses can also cause the disease

Viral Meningitis Symptoms Are Like Mild Flu-Like Symptoms:

  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Fever
  • General ill feeling
  • Neck stiffness
  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Nausea
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Vomiting

Later Symptoms in Viral Infections:

  • Blotchy red rash that does not fade or change color when you place a glass against it (rash is not always present)
  • Confusion
  • Drowsiness
  • Confusion
  • Seizures or fits
  • Sensitivity to bright lights
  • Stiff neck – also less common in young children
  • Rapid breathing rate

Meningitis in Babies and Young Children:

Note: Breastfeeding, when given during the first months, appears to give an additional protection against meningococcal infections.

Symptoms Include:

  • Convulsions
  • Floppy and unresponsive, or stiff with jerky movements
  • Irritable and not wanting to be held
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pale and blotchy skin
  • Staring expression
  • Swelling in the soft part of their head (fontanelle).
  • Unusual crying
  • Very sleepy with a reluctance to wake up
  • Vomiting and refusing feeds
