Mollaret's: Some cases of asceptic meningitis may be viral in origin and self limited, but symptoms may persist for months. A form of recurrent meningitis as above may be an autoimmune reaction and might respond to immune interventions. This is sort of tricky, as very few doctors have experience with this very rare condition, so find a good immunologist, and get this under control. No surgery please.
