A recent outbreak of cerebrospinal meningitis (CSM) in a community has largely been attributed to the illness behaviour as well as the health seeking behaviour of the people. Describe five (5) interventions that can be adopted in a medical pluralistic health system to improve early detection and management of cerebrospinal meningitis.

Meningitis is a rare infection that affects the delicate membranes -- called meninges -- that cover the brain and spinal cord. There are several types of this disease, including bacterial, viral, and fungal. Bacterial meningitis can be life-threatening and spreads between people in close contact with each other.
Meningitis is most often caused by a bacterial or viral infection. It also may be caused by a fungal infection, parasite, a reaction to certain medications or medical treatments, a rheumatologic disease such as lupus, some types of cancer, or a traumatic injury to the head or spine. Bacterial meningitis is a rare but potentially fatal disease. The historical record of cerebrospinal meningitis as a clinical and epidemiologic entity opens early in the 19th century with the description of an outbreak in Geneva, Switzerland, which began in March , and another in Medford, Mass., during March Isolation of the causative organism by Weichselbaum 1 in , confirmed by the extensive.

Cerebrospinal meningitis definition is - inflammation of the meninges of both brain and spinal cord; specifically: an infectious often epidemic and fatal meningitis caused by the meningococcus. Meningitis is an acute inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges.
The most common symptoms are fever, headache, and neck stiffness. Other symptoms include confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light or loud noises.
Young children often exhibit only nonspecific symptoms, such as Complications: Deafness, epilepsy.

I have read with great interest the treatment of cerebro- spinal meningitis suggested by Dr. Hare in THE LANCET.3 Granted that all the symptoms and signs of epidemic meningitis are due to pressure, cervical laminee tomy would seem to be the radical form of treatment.
This study sought to describe the clinical presentation of normocellular community-acquired bacterial meningitis in the prospective, nati. Suppurative meningitis (SM) or bacterial meningitis is a life-threatening condition, which is exceptionally due to pituitary tumors (PT).
Our aim was to analyze its frequency among male macroprolactinomas (MPRL) deemed to be aggressive, to report the cases we observed in our practice and describe the circumstances under which SM appeared.
cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). For Meningococcal meningitis, the bacteria can sometimes be detected by microscopy. Page 6 with the diagnosis confirmed by culture, agglutination tests, Nm protein antigen detection, or by nucleic acid tests such as PCR.
Test process time (time from specimen collection to result) is representative for each process, and. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) circulates throughout and around the CNS.
In other tissues, water and small molecules are filtered through capillaries as the major contributor to the interstitial fluid.
In the brain, CSF is produced in special structures to perfuse through the nervous tissue of the CNS and is continuous with the interstitial fluid.

In patients with Lyme meningitis, the CSF is characterized by low-grade lymphocytic pleocytosis, low glucose levels, and elevated protein levels. Oligoclonal bands reactive to B burgdorferi antigens may be present. Demonstration of the specific antibody to B burgdorferi aids in the diagnosis.
A CSF glucose level of ≤ 18 mg/dL or a CSF:blood glucose ratio of meningitis. However, changes in CSF glucose may lag 30 to minutes behind changes in blood glucose. In acute bacterial meningitis, an elevated protein level (usually to mg/dL) indicates blood-brain barrier injury.
A needle is inserted into the spinal canal to extract a sample of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) which envelops the brain and spinal cord. The CSF is examined in a medical laboratory. In someone suspected of having meningitis, blood tests are performed for markers of inflammation (e.g.
C-reactive protein, complete blood count) as well as blood cultures. No other epidemic disease presents more definite and characteristic lesions, post mortem, than cerebrospinal meningitis. According to its type and its duration there never fail to be found some of those changes in the membranes or in the substance of the great nervous centres which denote the existence of : Alfred Stille.
Overview of Cerebrospinal Meningitis. CSM is a respiratory and contagious disease. Clinical CSM disease was first described by Vieusseux in in Geneva, Switzerland while the causative agent, Neisseria meningitidis was identified by Austrian bacteriologist Anton Weichselbaum in .Since then, the disease has occurred in epidemic proportions in other parts of the world.
Meningitis is inflammation of the thin tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord, called the meninges. There are several types of meningitis. The most common is viral meningitis. You get it when a virus enters the body through the nose or mouth and travels to the brain.
Bacterial meningitis is rare, but can be deadly. Collection and Transport of Clinical Specimens Laboratory Methods. Inoculating and transporting T-I medium. T-I is a biphasic medium that is useful for the primary culture of meningococci and other etiological agents of bacterial meningitis (S.
pneumoniae and H. influenzae) from CSF (1).It can be used as a growth medium as well as a holding and transport medium. Cryptococcal antigen (CrAg) in CSF, serum, or plasma has become an essential diagnostic tool and should be performed on CSF for all patients with HIV with suspected meningitis or any central nervous system (CNS) symptoms to confirm a suspicion of cryptococcal infection.
The sensitivity of CrAg is 99 percent in blood, and higher in CSF. Related posts: MENINGITIS Dewey gives the common homeopathy remedies for the treatment of Meningitis in an easy question-answer format. .; MENINGITIS How can you treat Meningitis with Schüssler's Tissue Salts.
