Meningitis is an acute inflammation of meninges caused by bacterial, viral or fungal infection. Meningitis can also be caused by bleeding into the meninges, cancer, an inflammatory response to certain types of chemotherapy or other chemical agents.
Journal of Meningitis focuses on causative agents, pathophysiology, etiology, preventive measures, treatment, management of meningitis, etc. Articles on bacterial meningitis, viral meningitis, fungal meningitis and diagnostic tests such as imaging, lumbar puncture and vaccines are also considered.

Meningitis is an acute inflammation of the membranes (meninges) surrounding brain and spinal cord. It is characterized by swelling, headache, fever and a stiff neck. Meningitis is mostly caused by viral infection but can also be caused by bacteria and fungi.

Tuberculosis meningitis is caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection of the meninges. It is characterized by fever, loss of appetite and headache. The bacteria crosses Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) from the lungs to cause meningitis.

Blood cultures- Gram's stain.
Imaging- X-rays and computerized tomography (CT) scans of the head, chest or sinuses may reveal swelling or inflammation
Spinal tap (lumbar puncture)-The definitive diagnosis of meningitis requires an analysis of your cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)
Herpes Meningitis and bacterial meningitis- Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)

Acute meningitis is inflammation of the tissue layers that surround the brain and spinal cord that is often caused by a bacterial or viral infection. Symptoms includes headache, sensitivity to light, fever and neck stiffness.
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common cause of bacterial meningitis. The second most common cause of bacterial meningitis is Neisseria meningitidis.
Meningococcal vaccine is mainly given against Neisseria meningitides. It consists of 13 clinically significant serogroups, based on the antigenic structure of their polysaccharide capsule. Out of these six serogroups, A, B, C, Y, W-135, and X, are responsible for virtually all cases of the disease in humans.

Meningococcal disease describes infections caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis along with blood infection leading to sepsis. The toxins released by the bacteria into the blood can cause damage to blood vessels and other organs in the body. The symptoms include disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC), ischemia and haemorrhage.
According to National Meningitis Association, Approximately 600 – 1,000 people contract meningococcal disease in the U.S. each year. Out of which who get meningococcal disease, 10-15 percent die. 1 in 5 lives with permanent disabilities, such as brain damage, hearing loss, loss of kidney function or limb amputations.
It is caused by viruses like rabies virus, Herpes simplex, poliovirus, measles virus, varicella zoster virus, and JC virus. Enteroviruses Coxsackie or Echovirus groups of enteroviruses are the most common cause of viral meningitis.

Meningitis is contagious. Prolonged close contact can spread the bacteria that cause meningitis. The bacteria can be spread through kissing, coughs and sneezes, shared cutlery, or sharing items like toothbrushes or cigarettes. Outbreaks can occur where many young people live close to each other.
Pneumococcal meningitis is caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumonia. It spread through the tiny droplets from an infected person’s mouth, throat, or nose. Pneumococcal meningitis is generally diagnosed through a spinal tap. Sign and symptoms include chest pain, Chills, confusion, cough, headache, high fever, vomiting, weakness.
Antibiotics like fluoroquinolones are given in high doses by vein (intravenously) and additionally adjunctive anti-inflammatory therapies (eg, dexamethasone) decrease inflammation and adjunctive therapeutic strategies, such as glycerol, paracetamol, and induction of hypothermia.
Journal of Meningitis is supporting "world conference on infectious diseases" to be held during august 24-26, 2015 London, UK with a theme "Novel Technologies and Innovations for Prevention and Treatment of Infectious Diseases"
