Encephalitis and meningitis are inflammatory diseases of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord and are caused by bacterial or viral infections. Viral meningitis is sometimes called aseptic meningitis to indicate it is not the result of bacterial infection and cannot be treated with antibiotics. Symptoms of encephalitis include sudden fever, headache, vomiting, heightened sensitivity to light, stiff neck and back, confusion and impaired judgment, drowsiness, weak muscles, a clumsy and unsteady gait, and irritability. Symptoms that might require emergency treatment include loss of consciousness, seizures, muscle weakness, or sudden severe dementia. Symptoms of meningitis, which may appear suddenly, often include high fever, severe and persistent headache, stiff neck, nausea, and vomiting. Changes in behavior such as confusion, sleepiness, and difficulty waking up may also occur. In infants, symptoms of meningitis may include irritability or fatigue, lack of appetite, and fever. Viral meningitis usually resolves in 10 days or less, but other types of meningitis can be deadly if not treated promptly. Anyone experiencing symptoms of meningitis or encephalitis should see a doctor immediately.

Meningococcal Disease Frequently Asked Questions What is meningitis?
Meningitis is an infection of the fluid of a person's spinal cord and the fluid that surrounds the brain. People sometimes refer to it as spinal meningitis. Meningitis is usually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. Knowing whether meningitis is caused by a virus or bacterium is important because the severity of illness and the treatment differ. Viral meningitis is generally less severe and resolves without specific treatment, while bacterial meningitis can be quite severe and may result in brain damage, hearing loss, or learning disability. For bacterial meningitis, it is also important to know which type of bacteria is causing the meningitis because antibiotics can prevent some types from spreading and infecting other people. Before the 1990s, Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) was the leading cause of bacterial meningitis, but new vaccines being given to all children as part of their routine immunizations have reduced the occurrence of invasive disease due to

Parents Infections
Meningitis is an inflammation of the meninges , the membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. The inflammation is usually caused by bacteria or viruses (viral meningitis is also called aseptic meningitis ). Less common causes include fungi, protozoa, and other parasites. Sometimes certain medications, cancers, or other diseases can inflame the meninges, although such noninfectious cases of meningitis are much rarer. Many of the bacteria or viruses that can cause meningitis are fairly common and are more often associated with other everyday illnesses. Sometimes, however, they spread to the meninges from an infection in another part of the body. The infection can start anywhere, including in the skin, gastrointestinal tract, or urinary system, but the most common source is the respiratory tract. From there the microorganisms can enter the bloodstream, travel through the body, and enter the central nervous system. In some cases of bacterial meningitis, the bacteria spread directly to the meninges from a severe nearby infection, such as a serious ear infection (otitis media) or nasal sinus infection (sinusitis). Bacteria may also enter the central nervous system after severe head trauma or head surgery.

In der Bundesrepublik Deutschland werden jedes Jahr zwischen 700 und 800 Fälle von Meningokokken-Erkrankungen registriert, wobei besonders Kinder und Jugendliche vor dem zwanzigsten Lebensjahr betroffen sind. Weitere häufige Erreger der "klassischen", bakteriellen Meningitis sind Pneumokokken (Streptokokkus pneumoniae) und Haemophilus influenzae. Ihre Häufigkeit ist jedoch durch spezifische Impfprogramme in vielen Ländern deutlich zurückgegangen.

" Meningitis " heißt, daß die Hirnhäute entzündet sind. Es gibt eine große Zahl von Krankheitserregern oder anderen Ursachen, die zu einer entzündlichen Reizung der Hirnhäute führen können. Dazu zählen eine große Zahl von Viren und auch viele Bakterien. Reise- und tropenmedizinisch wichtig ist die sogen. Meningokokken-Meningitis, die durch Bakterien ausgelöst wird. Gegen diese Formen kann mit guten Impfstoffen Schutz erreicht werden. Prinzipiell sind die durch Bakterien verursachten Meningitisformen einer antibiotischen Therapie zugänglich. In jedem Fall braucht jede Meningitis bzw. meningitische Reizung intensive ärztliche Betreuung. Im Folgenden wird speziell die Meningokokken-Meningitis abgehandelt.
Die Infektion: Bei der Meningokokken-Meningitis handelt es sich um eine akute durch Tröpfchen übertragene Infektionserkrankung, die besonders die Hirnhäute befällt. Als Erreger sind die sogen. Meningokokken von Typ A, B, C, Y und W bekannt. Diese, wie auch die meisten anderen Meningitis-Erreger, gehen von Mensch zu Menschen über durch sogen. Tröpfcheninfektion, d.h., schon bei relativ distanzierten Kontakten (wie z.B. Husten im dichten Gedränge oder im Gespräch). Allerdings trägt ein großer Prozentsatz der Menschen auf der Welt (auch in Europa) Meningitis-Erreger im Mundbereich, ohne daß es zu Erkrankung oder Ansteckung kommt.

    Meningitis is an infection of the covering layers of the brain (meninges). Meningitis can be caused by various sorts of infection, with a virus, with a bacterium, and even with fungi.
    • Viral meningitis is usually considered to be benign, and is a fairly common complication of virus infections. There is no specific treatment.
    • The three main causes of bacterial meningitis have been:
      • Haemophilus Influenzae type b (Hib),
      • Meningococcus , and
      • Pneumococcus
      In Britain, the introduction of a Hib vaccination has led to a virtual eradication of Hib meningitis. The other two are left as the major causes of bacterial meningitis.
    The patient usually begins to feel vaguely unwell and may develop headache and a raised temperature ( fever ). There may also be vomiting. Unfortunately many ordinary germs start in this way, and certain other features can help to alert us to the possibility of meningitis. It is important not to be over anxious, but if in doubt it is better to discuss with your doctor. More suspicious symptoms include:
    • neck and back stiffness

    Global Laboratory Network for Measles Surveillance Viral Gastroenteritis Rotavirus ... Respiratory Syncytial Virus Viral (Aseptic) Meningitis What is meningitis?
    Meningitis is an illness in which there is inflammation of the tissues that cover the brain and spinal cord. Viral or aseptic meningitis, which is the most common type, is caused by an infection with one of several types of viruses. Meningitis can also be caused by infections with several types of bacteria or fungi. In the United States, there are between 25,000 and 50,000 hospitalizations due to viral meningitis each year. What are the symptoms of meningitis?
    The more common symptoms of meningitis are fever, severe headache, stiff neck, bright lights hurting the eyes, drowsiness or confusion, and nausea and vomiting. In babies, the symptoms are more difficult to identify. They may include fever, fretfulness or irritability, difficulty in awakening the baby, or the baby refuses to eat. The symptoms of meningitis may not be the same for every person. Is viral meningitis a serious disease?
