Meningitis: It doesn't look like it is bacterial meningitis as the # of WBC is only 28. Fungal, tuberculosis, viral meningitis are possible. A culture should have been set up to find the causative infection. Based on the ct, there appears to be changes, but again, not pointing to what infection is involved. Wait until the culture results are back if obtained.
