However, knowing more about the disease can help parents recognize signs and symptoms of meningitis as well as help differentiate be- tween various types of the dis- ease, said Chris Nelson, M.D., pediatric infectious disease spe- cialist and assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Meningitis is an infection of the "meninges," the fine mem- brane surrounding the brain and spinal cord. This infection is most commonly caused by either a bacteria or a virus. Although many people harbor various bac- teria and viruses in their throat and nasal passages without ill effects, it is unknown why this infection sometimes becomes in- vasive and enters the blood- stream, making its way to the meninges, Nelson said.

"Unless they have symptoms, there's no need to run to the doctor's office or emergency room." Bacterial meningitis is a much more serious infection and the need for early diagnosis and treatment is essential for the best outcomes, Nelson said. Symptoms for both forms of meningitis are high fever, head- ache and stiff neck but may also include nausea, vomiting, dis- comfort looking into bright lights, confusion, hallucinations and seizures.
