Despite recent advances in prevention and treatment of acute bacterial meningitis, it remains a life-threatening disease with significant morbidity and mortality (Figueiredo et al., 2018, van de Beek et al., 2012). Patients with bacterial meningitis often present with distant foci of infection, such as otitis, sinusitis, pneumonia, or endocarditis which can either precede or complicate clinical course (Bijlsma Merijn W et al., 2016, Figueiredo et al., 2020, Jim et al., 2012a, 2012b, Lucas et al., 2013).

Community-acquired bacterial meningitis is a life-threatening inflammatory disease caused by bacteria, such as Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Staphylococcus epidermidis, and Staphylococcus aureus, in the central nervous system (CNS). Streptococcus has been identified as the causative pathogen in approximately 50% bacterial meningitis cases (van Ettekoven et al., 2017).

Abstract Background Campylobacter fetus is an uncommon Campylobacter species, and its infections mainly cause infective endocarditis, aortic aneurysm, and meningitis rather than enteritis. It is more likely to be detected in blood than Campylobacter jejuni or Campylobacter coli, specifically reported in 53% of patients. In our case, C. fetus was detected in both blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cultures. …

The blood culture showed presence of spirillums; 16S rRNA gene sequencing confirmed that the spirillums in the blood culture were Campylobacter insulaenigrae (C. insulaenigrae). We started treatment with meropenem for bacteremia and meningitis. When the symptoms improved, meropenem was replaced with ampicillin, based on the result of the drug sensitivity test. The treatment continued for 4 weeks. Conclusions …

Meningitis remains a significant burden on the healthcare system at the global level, especially in children. The number of meningitis was over 5,000,000 in all ages in 2017.(James et al., 2018) Despite antimicrobial treatment, up to 23% of the survivors may still suffer from long term neurological sequelae at the age of 5.(de Louvois, Halket, & Harvey, 2005) Neonates and infants less than 3 months of age are particularly prone to suffer meningitis because of their exposure to potential pathogens in the bi…

… Background Psittacosis, which is also known as parrot fever, is Chlamydia psittaci (C. psittaci) caused infectious disease. The clinical manifestations vary from asymptomatic infection to severe atypical pneumonia or even fatal meningitis. Early recognition of psittacosis is difficult because of its nonspecific clinical manifestations. Culture and gene probe techniques for C. psittaci are not available for routine clinical use, which makes the diagnosis difficult too. Although ps…

Introduction: Cryptococcosis remains a leading cause of meningitis and mortality among people living with HIV (PLHIV) worldwide. We sought to evaluate laboratory-based cryptococcal antigen (CrAg) reflex testing and a clinic-based point-of-care (POC) CrAg screening intervention for preventing meningitis and mortality among PLHIV in South Africa.

Background Higher doses of intravenous rifampicin may improve outcomes in tuberculous meningitis but is impractical in high burden settings. We hypothesized that plasma rifampicin exposures would be similar between oral 35 mg/kg and intravenous 20 mg/kg, which has been proposed for efficacy trials in tuberculous meningitis. Materials and methods We performed a randomized parallel group pharmacokinetic study nested within a clinical trial of intensified antimicrobial therapy for tuberculous meningitis. HIV-p…
