In brief: 2 yrs old meningitis

Classic symptoms in two years old are nausea &vomiting, headache, fever, increase sesitivity to light, altered mental status and confusion, seizure activity, lethargy, neck pain and stiffnass.
The symptoms in viral meningitis are milder. Not all symptoms have to be present in all cases, and they vary from case to case.
