Hi. I was wondering if someone could assits me in relating pathophysiology of bacterial meningitis to its signs n symptoms?
Infections. Symptoms include headache, neck pain, sensitivity to light and drowsiness. Signs can be fevers, shaking chills, or rash. Small children may not have classic signs or symptoms however.
Meninges. The meninges are a covering made of connective tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Bacterial meningitis is an infection confined to the meninges. Symptoms result from inflammation and abscesses in various areas of the nervous system that are in contact with the infection. Ese include brain, spine, and nerve roots.
