Symptoms of Meningitis in Children

 Meningitis is a disease issued by inflammation in the meningitis layer surrounding the brain.

A meningular membrane is a thin membrane that surrounds the brain. Since the meningosa is extended to the spinal cord, it is more precisely called the meningosa. Generally, it refers to various diseases that cause inflammation in the space under the spider membrane (spider membrane space) that exists between the spider membrane and the soft membrane.




It is a relatively common disease that occurs in 11 to 27 people per 100,000 people, and the most common cause is the virus penetrating into the cerebrospinal fluid space. Inflammation occurs mainly due to viruses, germs, and tuberculosis bacteria. Most of them are caused by viruses.

The most common causes of viral meningitis are ecovirus and coxaki virus, and measles viruses also cause aseptic meningitis. Aseptic meningitis occurs a lot between summer and fall, and 85 to 90% of the causes of the disease are caused by enterovirus.


Adults who change diapers for babies infected with the virus can also be infected with the virus. Infected people can develop respiratory secretions either directly or indirectly. The mechanism by which bacterial infections penetrate the cerebrospinal fluid space can be thought of as blood-borne transmission into the cerebrospinal fluid space, or a bacterial infection in the middle ear or base of the skull directly into the cerebrospinal space.




Usually, symptoms show a high fever of more than 38 degrees when it begins suddenly. Headache is most common, and vomiting, stiff neck makes it difficult to lower your head, muscle pain, glare (can't stand bright light) Rarely, convulsive newborns develop drowsiness, lactation difficulty, fever, irritation or irritation.


remedial treatment

 Meningitis caused by virus intrusion can improve naturally, and there are treatments to relieve symptoms of fever, headache and dehydration. If bacterial meningitis is suspected, antibiotics should be administered and treatment period of 10 to 14 days is required depending on the cause. Older people, children, and people with health-related factors should be particularly careful. Because meningoccus aureus is highly contagious, patients should be treated separately, and preventive treatment is also required for families and medical personnel in contact with patients.
