Abstract

Meningitis is an acute inflammation of leptomeninges and CSF caused by mainly bacteria, virus and less commonly fungus which has 50% case fatality rate if untreated. The most common symptoms are a stiff neck, high fever, sensitivity to light, confusion, headaches and vomiting. Meningitis is potentially fatal and should always be viewed as a medical emergency. Thus early diagnosis and effective management of suspected cases of meningitis will lead to significantly reduction in mortality.
