Meningitis and Encephalitis Book Excerpt:

Meningitis and Encephalitis are associated with high rates of mortality and neurological sequelae. The differential diagnosis includes a wide spectrum of infectious and non-infectious etiologies, some requiring urgent therapy for survival. The current management challenges in patients with meningitis and encephalitis include a low sensitivity of meningeal signs, overutilization of unnecessary screening cranial imaging, delays in diagnosis of urgent treatable causes, a large proportion of unknown etiologies, low sensitivity of current microbiological techniques especially in the setting of previous antibiotic therapy, underutilization of available molecular diagnostic tests, and empiric antibiotic therapy and hospitalization for viral meningitis cases. Even though there are published guidelines, compliance with them is not optimal and physicians do not follow standardized algorithms in their empirical approach. As meningitis and encephalitis is associated with high rates of adverse clinical outcomes, prevention, when feasible is of upmost importance. Adherence to protocols to prevent health-care associated meningitis and ventriculitis are effective but compliance with them is not uniformly performed. This book seeks to improve outcomes for meningitis and encephalitis cases handled by physicians who may or may not be thoroughly trained for these challenges. The text introduces the current guidelines but also discusses the gaps that leave clinicians struggling to implement the most appropriate approaches for these particular neurological infections. Each chapter delivers the tools necessary to identify and adhere to the most appropriate diagnostic technique, management protocols, and prevention approach for each situation. All chapters conclude with discourse on future directions in research and quality improvement. Written by experts in infectious diseases, the book covers topics that are the most devastating, including healthcare-acquired infections, autoimmune encephalitis, and infections as they present in HIV patients. Meningitis and Encephalitis is a well-rounded resource for all medical professionals encountering these neurological syndromes, including infectious disease specialists, neurologists, primary care physicians, and immunologists.

Neonatal Meningitis Book Excerpt:

Meningitis is an uncommon but serious illness at any age, and during the first few weeks of life it poses a particular hazard with high mortality and a considerable risk to survivors of permanent damage to the developing brain. This book comprehensively reviews bacterial, fungal and viral forms of the illness. Epidemiology and comparisons of maternally and environmentally derived infections are included, along with a view of the developing brain and host defence mechanisms. A review of experimental bacterial meningitis is provided, together with a discussion of its relevance for clinical and laboratory diagnosis, and for antimicrobial and supportive management. Prospects for the future in terms of early diagnosis, management and prevention are also addressed. In its collation of material from such a wide range of literature sources, this is a vital reference for all clinicians with an interest in the problems of meningitis in early life.
