Meningitis is a condition that causes acute inflammation of the meninges. These meninges are protective membranes that cover the brain and spinal cord. Non-specific symptoms include:

  • Confusion
  • Vomiting
  • Irritability
  • Drowsiness
  • A rash if present may indicate a particular cause

Meningitis is categorized as a life-threatening condition because of the proximity of the inflammation to the brain and spinal cord. So, it is diagnosed and treated immediately to avoid complications.
