Review: Diagnosis and Treatment of Central Nervous System Infections in the Emergency Department

Visit

Dorsett M, Liang SY

Objective: This review discusses the clinical signs and symptoms that should lead emergency physicians to consider CNS infection, paying particular attention to the sensitivity and specificity of different clinical findings at the bedside. Subsequently, the diagnostic workup and management of patients for whom there is high clinical suspicion for CNS infection is discussed.

Systematic Review: Diagnostic accuracy of cerebrospinal fluid lactate for differentiating bacterial meningitis from aseptic meningitis: a meta-analysis

Visit

Sakushima K, Hayashino Y, Kawaguchi T, Jackson JL, Fukuhara S

Objective: Our study's purpose was to assess the utility of CSF lactate in differentiating bacterial meningitis from aseptic meningitis.

Systematic Review: Clinical features suggestive of meningitis in children: a systematic review of prospective data

Visit

Curtis S, Stobart K, Vandermeer B, Simel DL, Klassen T

Objective: To seek evidence supporting accuracy of clinical features of pediatric bacterial meningitis.

Review: Treatment of herpes simplex virus infections in pediatric patients: current status and future needs

Visit

James SH, Whitley RJ

Objective: To present an overview of the major clinical manifestations of HSV infections in the pediatric population.

Review: Emergency department management of meningitis and encephalitis

Visit

Fitch MT, Abrahamian FM, Moran GJ, Talan DA

Objective: This article addresses considerations in clinical evaluation, need for CNS imaging before LP, interpretation of cerebrospinal fluid results, standards for and effects of timely antibiotic administration, and recommendations for specific antimicrobial therapy and corticosteroids.

Review: Viral meningitis

Visit

Logan SA, MacMahon E

Objective: In this review we outline the changing epidemiology, discuss key clinical topics, and illustrate how identification of the specific viral cause is beneficial. Neonatal meningitis may be a component of perinatal infection and is not covered here.
