Acute suppurative meningitis

Acute suppurative meningitis, also known as meningitis, is an acute inflammatory reaction of pia mater, arachnoid, cerebrospinal fluid and ventricle caused by suppurative bacteria. The surface of brain and spinal cord can be slightly involved, which often exists at the same time with suppurative encephalitis or brain abscess. Purulent meningitis is a serious intracranial infection. Although the development of antibiotics has made great progress, the mortality and disability rate of acute purulent meningitis are still high.
