Abstract

Further reduction in morbidity and mortality from bacterial meningitis is unlikely to stem from innovations in antibiotic management. Emphasis must therefore be directed toward prevention, more rapid diagnosis, and improved therapy for maintaining the integrity of the CNS. Raised intracranial pressure is frequently associated with bacterial meningitis. In selected patients with bacterial meningitis and clinical evidence of elevated intracranial pressure, monitoring and aggressive treatment of this pressure could be crucial to survival.
