In brief: Aseptic meningitis

When cultured, no bacterial organism is isolated. It is usually self-limiting, and for the most part, not as severe as bacterial meningitis.

In brief: Agree

Fully agree, with the following caveats: tuberculosis can present as "aseptic" meningitis.
And herpes meningitis (newborns) can be severe and devastating. Many people with a really bad headache have actually had viral meningitis.
