Bacterial meningitis in neonates and infants – the sonographic picture

Bacterial meningitis is a major diagnostic and therapeutic problem among children and neonates, with severe, rapidly progressing course and potentially life-threatening complications. Early antibacterial treatment is essential for the patient’s favorable prognosis. Cerebral imaging plays an important role in the diagnostic process alongside physical examination and laboratory tests. Magnetic resonance imaging is the gold standard for diagnosing bacterial meningitis. Because of limited

Enteroviruses Associated with Aseptic Meningitis in Poland, 2011–2014

A 4-year study (2011–2014) of patients with meningitis was performed. Out of the 686 cerebrospinal fluid samples, 465 (67.8%) were posi­tive for eneteroviruses using RT-PCR and out of 334 clinical samples, 216 (64.7%) were positive for enteroviruses using cell culture methods. The highest detection rate was observed in the summer and autumn. In total, 185 enteroviruses were identified by using neutralization test. Echovirus 6 and 30 were the most common (41.7% and 37.5% respectively

Does duration and sampling of external ventricular drainage systems influence infection rate?

diagnose external drainage related bacterial meningitis at an early stage. Nurses are routinely instructed to collect cerebrospinal fluid from ventricular catheters for analysis. Does the way in which sampling occurs relate to increased infection? This literature review will discuss that prophylactic frequent cerebrospinal fluid sampling is of no benefit and increases infection risk and should be limited. It will also provide evidence that duration of the external ventricular drain (EVD) systems does

The effectiveness of IVIg treatment is dependent on how soon after diagnosis treatment is commenced

that may occur during transfusion such as; anaphylaxis, haemolysis, thromboembolic events or aseptic meningitis (Hahn et al. 2013). IVIg can have a negative effect of the patient’s renal function, therefore Mrs Smiths’ renal function should have been checked prior to commencing the infusion and continued to be monitored over the course of five days (Lawson & Arnold, 2014).
