Discussion about the presentation of meningitis, signs, and diagnosis of meningitis. Remember meningitis is the inflammation and infection of the covering of the central nervous system such as the dura. On the other hand encephalitis is the infection/inflammation of the actual brain itself. Menignitis can be caused by many types of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. In recent news, compounded steroids used in spinal injections has caused a multitude of cases of fungal meningitis, resulting in many deaths making understanding this topic very important for healthcare workers.
