Rapport og anbefaling vedrørende ulemper og fordele ved henholdsvis at undlade eller gennemføre lumbalpunktur for patienter i blodfortyndende behandling mistænkt for akut bakteriel meningitis.

Denne vejledning er tiltænkt diagnostik og behandling af formodet Lyme neuroborreliose hos voksne. Vejledningen er udarbejdet som et supplement til Borrelia klaringsrapport (2014).

Af Rikke Krogh-Madsen, formand for Dansk Selskab for Infektionsmedicin. Der er lige nu massivt fokus på læger der har begået fejl. Aktuelt drejer det sig om behandling af meningokoksygdom. Bestyrelsen for Dansk Selskab for Infektionsmedicin (DSI) kender ikke til detaljerne i de konkrete sager og har ikke set sagsakterne. Dette er derfor en generel udtalelse som tager udgangspunkt i udmeldingen fra Patienterstatningen vedr. de tre meningokok-sager.

Before the advent of anti-tuberculosis drugs in the 1940’s, tuberculous meningitis (TBM) was a much feared and almost universally fatal form of tuberculosis. Thus when the first anti-tuberculosis drugs, streptomycin and para-aminosalycilic acid (PAS), became available, they were given first to those with TBM. Suddenly, the disease became treatable. Case-fatality fell from 70% with streptomycin and PAS, to around 30% with the combination of isoniazid, pyrazinamide and rifampicin[1].

AbstractBackgroundRandomized trials (RCTs) from low- and middle-income settings suggested early initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) leads to higher mortality among people with HIV (PWH) who present with cryptococcal meningitis (CM). There is limited information about impact of ART timing on mortality in similar people in high-income settings.MethodsData on ART-naïve PWH diagnosed with CM from 1994-2012 from Europe/North America were pooled from the COHERE, NA-ACCORD and CNICS HIV cohort collaboratio…

AbstractBackgroundDrug regimens which include intensified antibiotics alongside effective anti-inflammatory therapies may improve outcomes in Tuberculous Meningitis (TBM). Safety data on their use in combination and in the context of HIV is needed to inform clinical trial design.MethodsWe conducted a phase 2 open-label parallel-design RCT to assess safety of high-dose rifampicin, linezolid and high-dose aspirin in HIV-associated TBM.

Streptococcus pneumoniae is a leading cause of bacterial meningitis worldwide. Conventional microbiological assays take several days and require the use of various drugs for empirical treatment. Rapid antigen tests in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) may be useful to triage pneumococcal meningitis immediately.
