    • h/o Altered sensorium
    • Neck rigidity (+)
    • CSF showing high protein and low sugar
    AGAINST
    • h/o seizures
    • CSF showing no wbc, gram stain and culture - sterile
    • CECT brain- normal study
    • MRI brain- normal study
    • MOST LIKELY
  • In a prospective observational study conducted in our institute among 127 patients who presented to emergency services with fever(duration<2 wks) & altered mentation over 1 year
    Results:
    BhallaA et al. J emergencies,trauma and shock 2010
    • Seizures have been described in 15 to 30 percent of patients with bacterial meningitis and focal neurologic deficits in 10 to 35 percent of patients.
    Durand, et al. Acute bacterial meningitis in adults. N Engl J Med 1993; 328:21
    • An observational study found that bacterial meningitis was highly probable (≥99 percent certainty) when any one of the following parameters was present: a CSF glucose concentration below 34 mg/dL (1.9 mmol/L), a protein concentration above 220 mg/dL, a white blood cell count above 2000/microL, or a neutrophil count more than 1180/microL. CSF glucose concentrations less than 18 mg/dL (1.0 mmol/L) are strongly predictive of bacterial meningitis
     Spanos et al.. JAMA 1989; 262:2700.
  • Normal or marginally ↑CSF WBC -> 5 to 10 % and are associated with an adverse outcome
    New Engl J Med 2006;354:44-53
    • CSF bacterial cultures are positive in >80% of patients, and CSF Gram's stain demonstrates organisms in >60%.
    Harrison principles of internal medicine,17th edition
  • In a prospective study involving 301 adults with suspected meningitis confirmed that clinical features can be used to identify patients who are unlikely to have abnormal findings on cranial CT (41 percent of the patients in this study), 235 patients who underwent cranial CT, in only 5 patients (2 percent) was bacterial meningitis confirmed
