Acute Meningitis

Meningitis is the inflammation of the leptomeninges, the tissues surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Prompt identification and treatment of infectious meningitis may prevent irreversible neurological sequelae. Evaluation of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) for white blood cells (WBCs), red blood cells (RBCs), malignant cells, bacterial, viral or fungal elements, protein and glucose levels, as well as other markers is critical to determine correct treatment and optimal outcomes.
