Seizures that occur during a febrile episode. It is a common condition, affecting 2-5% of children aged 3 months to five years. An autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance has been identified in some families. The majority are simple febrile seizures (generally defined as generalized onset, single seizures with a duration of less than 30 minutes). Complex febrile seizures are characterized by focal onset, duration greater than 30 minutes, and/or more than one seizure in a 24 hour period. The likelihood of developing epilepsy (i.e., a nonfebrile seizure disorder) following simple febrile seizures is low. Complex febrile seizures are associated with a moderately increased incidence of epilepsy. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, p784)

Human herpesvirus 6 DNA in cerebrospinal fluid specimens from allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients: does it have clinical significance? (1/161)

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens from 22 allogeneic bone marrow transplant patients with central nervous system (CNS) symptoms (cases) and 107 patients who were immunocompromised but did not have CNS symptoms (controls) were assayed for human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) DNA. HHV-6 DNA was detected in CSF specimens from five (23%) of 22 cases and in CSF specimens from one (0.9%) of 107 controls (P < .001, Fisher's exact test). In addition, none of the five cases with HHV-6 DNA detected in CSF samples had any other identified cause of their CNS symptoms, and none of the other 11 cases with known causes for their CNS diseases had HHV-6 DNA detected in CSF samples (P = .03, Fisher's exact test). In three cases, HHV-6 variant B was identified, and the HHV-6 variant could not be defined in the other two cases. Prophylaxis with acyclovir did not prevent the occurrence of HHV-6-associated CNS disease after allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. Four cases' conditions were improved or they were cured after treatment with either ganciclovir or foscarnet, and one case died of CNS disease despite foscarnet treatment.  (+info)

Acute symptomatic seizures - incidence and etiological spectrum: a hospital-based study from South India. (2/161)

We analysed the incidence and etiological spectrum of acute symptomatic seizures in 2531 patients with seizure disorder, both in-patients and out-patients, seen in a university hospital in South India. Seizure(s) occurred in close temporal association with an acute systemic, metabolic, or toxic insult or in association with an acute central nervous system (CNS) insult in 22.5% of patients. Of the 572 patients, 8% could be grouped under the International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE) category 4.1 and 92% under category 1.2. The seizure type was generalized in all the patients included in category 4.1 and 78% of patients grouped in category 2.1 had simple or complex partial seizure(s) with or without secondary generalization. Sixteen (3%) patients developed status epilepticus during the acute phase of illness and 7% of patients had only single seizure. Infections of the central nervous system (CNS) and single CT enhancing lesions (SCTEL) together accounted for 77% of the provoking factors in patients grouped under category 2.1. These two etiological factors together accounted for 95% of etiologies in patients aged under 16 years. SCTEL and neurocysticercosis together accounted for 67% of the provoking factors. In 14% of patients cerebrovascular diseases were the etiological factors and 60% of the patients were aged over 40 years. In patients with cerebrovascular diseases, aged under 40 years, cortical sinovenous thrombosis accounted for 37%. SCTEL was the provoking factor in 61% of patients with isolated seizure. Infections of CNS and SCTEL together accounted for 62.5% of etiological factors for status epilepticus. This study illustrates that the etiological spectrum of acute symptomatic seizures in this part of the world is different from that described from developed countries and CNS infections account for a significant number of cases.  (+info)

The mumps virus neurovirulence safety test in Rhesus monkeys: a comparison of mumps virus strains. (3/161)

Wild type mumps viruses are highly neurotropic and a frequent cause of aseptic meningitis in unvaccinated humans. To test whether attenuated mumps viruses used in the manufacture of mumps vaccines have neurovirulent properties, a monkey neurovirulence safety test (MNVT) is performed. However, results with several mumps virus MNVTs have raised questions as to whether the test can reliably discriminate neurovirulent from nonneurovirulent mumps virus strains. Here, various mumps virus strains representing a wide range of neuropathogenicity were tested in a standardized MNVT. A trend of higher neurovirulence scores was observed in monkeys inoculated with wild type mumps virus versus vaccine strains, although differences were not statistically significant. Results indicated the need for further examination and refinement of the MNVT or for development of alternative MNVTs.  (+info)

Tuberculosis of the central nervous system. (4/161)

Tuberculous involvement of the brain and spinal cord are common neurological disorders in developing countries and have recently shown a resurgence in developed ones. Tuberculous meningitis is an important manifestation and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis is based on clinical features, cerebrospinal fluid changes, and imaging characteristics. Bacteriological confirmation is not possible in all cases as serological tests do not have sufficient sensitivity and specificity. The polymerase chain reaction shows promise for the future. Appropriate chemotherapeutic agents should be administered as early as possible, although there is no unanimity concerning chemotherapeutic regimens or optimal duration of treatment. The patient's clinical stage at presentation is the most important prognostic factor. The role of corticosteroids is controversial but they should be administered to all patients presenting in stage III. Surgical procedures are directed at management of the hydrocephalus. Focal lesions, intracranial tuberculomas, and tuberculous abscesses, are usually located in cerebral or cerebellar hemispheres, uncommonly in brainstem and very rarely in spinal cord. They do not usually require surgical intervention and respond well to antituberculous treatment, along with corticosteroids.  (+info)

Measles virus infection in a transgenic model: virus-induced immunosuppression and central nervous system disease. (5/161)

Measles virus (MV) infects 40 million persons and kills one million per year primarily by suppressing the immune system and afflicting the central nervous system (CNS). The lack of a suitable small animal model has impeded progress of understanding how MV causes disease and the development of novel therapies and improved vaccines. We tested a transgenic mouse line in which expression of the MV receptor CD46 closely mimicked the location and amount of CD46 found in humans. Virus replicated in and was recovered from these animals' immune systems and was associated with suppression of humoral and cellular immune responses. Infectious virus was recovered from the CNS, replicated primarily in neurons, and spread to distal sites presumably by fast axonal transport. Thus, a small animal model is available for analysis of MV pathogenesis.  (+info)

Neuropathogenesis of simian immunodeficiency virus in neonatal rhesus macaques. (6/161)

Neonatal human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection usually occurs intrapartum or postpartum and results in a higher incidence of neurological dysfunction than is seen in adults. To explore the neuropathogenesis of neonatal HIV infection, we infected neonatal macaques with simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) and followed the course of infection focusing on early time points. Infected neonates had decreased brain growth and mild histological changes in brain that resembled those seen in pediatric AIDS, including perivascular infiltrates of mononuclear cells, mineralization of vessels in the basal ganglia, and gliosis. The perivascular lesions and gliosis were associated with the presence of occasional infected cells that required in situ hybridization with radiolabeled riboprobes for detection. Using this technique, SIV-infected cells were detected in the brain parenchyma within 7 days of infection. These findings were confirmed by nested PCR for SIVgag DNA in brain and RT-PCR for viral RNA in cerebrospinal fluid. Together, these techniques revealed SIV infection of the CNS in 12 of 13 neonates infected with SIVmac239, 3 of 3 infected with SIVmac251, and 2 of 2 infected with SIVmac239/316. The prevalence of CNS infection was indistinguishable from that of older animals infected with the same dose and stock of virus, but neonates appeared to have fewer infected cells in the CNS and detecting them required more sensitive techniques. This observation was true regardless of inoculum and despite the fact that neonates had equal or greater viral loads in the periphery compared with older animals. These data suggest that maturation-dependent host factors have a major impact on the neuropathogenesis of pediatric AIDS.  (+info)

Outpatient parenteral antimicrobial therapy for central nervous system infections. (7/161)

Patients with central nervous system (CNS) infections are increasingly treated with intravenous antimicrobials outside the hospital, but the safety and problems associated with this therapy have not been well defined. To examine this issue, we reviewed 68 cases in which outpatient intravenous antimicrobial therapy (OPAT) was received through our physician office-based infusion clinic. All infections were cured, and no deaths occurred during therapy. Seizures occurred in 2 patients but without significant injury and apparently were unrelated to antimicrobial therapy. Eleven patients (16%) were hospitalized after starting OPAT, 5 for procedures and 6 for medical reasons. The antimicrobial used was changed in 13 cases (19%) because of an adverse effect or clinical failure. OPAT can be safe and effective for patients with CNS infections, but patients must be carefully selected and monitored closely.  (+info)

Effective use of polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis of central nervous system infections. (8/161)

Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based testing of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) specimens has become standard for confirmatory diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) infections; however, these tests increase health care costs. We reviewed 3-year data from 974 consecutive CSF specimens submitted for detection of seven pathogens by PCR. In 1997, 237 of 367 specimens (64.6%) were submitted for multiple tests, compared with 203 of 522 (38.9%) in 1996 and 18 of 85 (21.2%) in 1995. In each year the arrival of new house officers coincided with a peak in multiple testing. Among 732 specimens submitted for herpesvirus detection, results were positive for 24 (4.6%) of 523 specimens with increased leukocyte counts or protein levels. None of 209 specimens with normal leukocyte and protein levels were positive for herpesviruses. None of 471 CSF specimens submitted for Borrelia burgdorferi detection were PCR-positive. Use of protein and leukocytes to screen CSF specimens before employing PCR for herpesvirus detection would save almost one-third of costs without reducing sensitivity.  (+info)

The expectation for intellectual performance of children born with myelomeningocele has often been reported to be significantly decreased due to the presence of hydrocephalus. This study examines the medical histories as well as psychological performance scores of 167 patients observed in our multidisciplinary clinic. Based only on medical histories, the subjects were placed into one of three groups: nonshunted, shunted, and shunted with a history of ventriculitis. Their IQ scores were then compiled and resulted in the following performance breakdown of mean IQs: nonshunted, IQ = 102; shunted, IQ = 95; shunted with a history of ventriculitis, IQ = 72, There were no cases of central nervous system infections in patients who did not have hydrocephalus. Visual motor integration scores were also categorized in the same manner, illustrating a similar trend for severely depressed scores in the group that was shunted and had a history of ventriculitis, while at the same time showing the two remaining ...
In this nationwide population-based cohort study using national Danish registries, in the period 1980-2008, our aim was to study employment and receipt of disability pension after central nervous system infections. All patients diagnosed between 20 and 55 years of age with meningococcal (n = 451), pneumococcal (n = 553), or viral (n = 1,433) meningitis or with herpes simplex encephalitis (n = 115), who were alive 1 year after diagnosis, were identified. Comparison cohorts were drawn from the general population, and their members were individually matched on age and sex to patients.

CNS infections, such as meningitis, are considered neurologic emergencies that require prompt recognition, diagnosis, and management to prevent death and residual neurologic deficits. Improperly treated, CNS infections are associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Despite advances in care, the overall mortality of bacterial meningitis in the United States remains at approximately 15%, and at least 10% to 30% of survivors are afflicted with neurologic impairment, including hearing loss, hemiparesis, and learning disabilities.1,2 Antimicrobial therapy and preventive vaccines have revolutionized management and improved outcomes of bacterial meningitis and other CNS infections dramatically. ...

Full standardized ECG [Figure 1] showed sinus rhythm, normal axis, heart rate of 60/min, and normal QRS complex duration and PR and QT intervals. However, T-wave abnormalities in this ECG were detected. T-waves were tall, broad, and asymmetrically peaked. T-waves were inverted in V1, V2, avR, and bifid in V3 (marked with an arrow), whereas large upright T-wave was noticed in V4, V5, and V6. The largest amplitude was seen in V4 - 1.8 mV (marked with a small arrow) with a T/QRS ratio of 1.28 which qualifies for giant T-wave. This tall T-wave cannot be explained by hyperkalemia which is a common cause of tall T-wave in our clinical practice as serum potassium level was within the normal range (serum potassium: 4.4 mEq per dL) and normal troponin I. Echocardiography examination was also normal. T-wave abnormality disappeared once the CNS pathology resolved. ECG was normal at discharge. The child was discharged after 7 days of hospital stay with the normal neurological state.{Figure 1 ...

Most infections are polymicrobial and involve aerobes and anaerobes. Empiric therapy is generally based on the expected pathogens and the particular type of infection. Even when specimens are cultured and anaerobes identified, not all laboratories perform susceptibility testing. The clinician often relies on published surveillance data when selecting treatment regimens. Antimicrobial susceptibility of anaerobic bacteria is becoming increasingly unpredictable. Resistance can vary significantly and patterns differ geographically, and even within units of the same hospital. From June 2005 until February 2007, 180 consecutive anaerobes isolated from relevant, non- repetitive clinical specimens were tested routinely with the E test method for susceptibility to amoxicillin/ clavulanate (XL), clindamycin (Cm), metronidazole (Mz), penicillin ...
The definitive treatment is surgical closure before the lesion is colonised, ideally within 24 hours but definitely within 72 hours. The goal of surgery is to close the dura mater and skin over the spinal cord to prevent central nervous system infection, but this does not reverse the congenital neurological deficit. Although a neurosurgeon should be the practitioner best trained to perform this surgery, many of these children are still managed by other surgical specialists in SA and other developing countries.. Some authors recommend administration of intravenous antibiotics if the lesion is leaking cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), as the latter may increase the risk of ventriculitis.[8] The use of antibiotics must not engender a false sense of security, and closure should still be performed as soon as possible as this is the most effective antimicrobial strategy. In developing countries, many of these children present too late for primary closure and if the back is kept clean, the lesion may ...

RESULTS. Ninety-four consecutive records were evaluated. In the documentation of hospital notes, accurate description of seizure was observed in 92%, incorrect diagnosis or coding in 12%, and presence/absence of signs of meningitis and parental counselling documented in 64% and 85%, respectively. Regarding unit statistics, investigations performed included a complete blood count, blood glucose, serum calcium, serum electrolytes, renal function tests, liver function tests, chest X-ray, and urinalysis. The mean number of routine investigations was seven. The average length of stay was 2 days. There were no cases of delay in the diagnosis of central nervous system infection. Inappropriate investigations and treatment were as follows: electroencephalography 11%, computer tomography brain scan 2%, and maintenance anticonvulsants 2%. All patients were discharged home with panadol regardless of clinical state ...
Toxoplasma gondii is a common central nervous system infection in individuals with immunocompromised immune systems, such as AIDS patients. Interferon-gamma (IFNgamma) is the main cytokine mediating protection against T. gondii. Our previous studies found IFNgamma significantly inhibits T. gondii in astrocytes via an IGTP dependent mechanism. The IGTP-dependent- IFNgamma stimulated inhibition is not understood but recent studies found IGTP induces disruption of the parasitophorous vacuole (PV) in macrophages. In the current study, we have further investigated the mechanism of IFNgamma inhibition and the role of IGTP in the vacuolar disruption in murine astrocytes. Vacuolar disruption was found to be dependent upon IGTP as PV disruption was not observed in IGTP deficient astrocytes (IGTP(-/-)) and PV disruption could be induced in IGTP(-/-) astrocytes transfected with IGTP. Live cell-imaging studies using GFP-IGTP found IGTP is delivered to the PV via host cell ER early after invasion and that ...
Plasmodium falciparum remains one of the most common causes of central nervous system infection worldwide. Recently, differences between the pathophysiology of cerebral malaria in African children and nonimmune adults have been discovered, new syndromes occurring after malaria infection described, and mechanisms for the pathogenesis proposed. In addition, new antimalarial agents have been examined worldwide and initial studies on supportive studies conducted. This paper reviews these new advances, putting them into the perspective of the more established knowledge.

The potential of nitric oxide (NO) as a rapid assay biomarker, one that could provide a quantum leap in acute care, remains largely untapped. NO plays a crucial role as bronchodilator, vasodilator and inflammatory mediator. The main objective of this review is to demonstrate how NO is a molecule of heavy interest in various acute disease states along the emergency department and critical care spectrum: respiratory infections, central nervous system infections, asthma, acute kidney injury, sepsis, septic shock, and myocardial ischemia, to name just a few. We discuss how NO and its oxidative metabolites, nitrite and nitrate, are readily detectable in several body compartments and fluids, and as such they are associated with many of the pathophysiological processes mentioned above. With methods such as high performance liquid chromatography and chemiluminescence these entities are relatively easy and inexpensive to analyze. Emphasis is placed on diagnostic rapidity, as this relates directly to quality of

Previous multicenter/multinational studies were evaluated to determine the frequency of the absence of cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis in patients with central nervous system infections, as well as the clinical impact of this condition. It was found that 18% of neurosyphilis, 7.9% of herpetic meningoencephalitis, 3% of tuberculous meningitis, 1.7% of Brucella meningitis, and 0.2% of pneumococcal meningitis cases did not display cerebrospinal fluid pleocytosis. Most patients were not immunosuppressed. Patients without pleocytosis had a high rate of unfavorable outcomes and thus this condition should not be underestimated. (C) 2017 The Author(s).

In addition to the history and physical examination, clinical diagnosis of CNS infections requires a spinal fluid analysis combined with neuroimaging using either magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scan. Microbiologic diagnosis of bacterial infections frequently is made using Gram stain and culture of spinal fluid and blood. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assays and serologic tests are also useful. Antimicrobial therapy requires that the antibiotics be bactericidal and that they penetrate the blood-brain barrier. Some CNS infections, such as a brain abscess, often require surgical drainage. ...
Reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assays were performed using HPeV-specific 5 untranslated region (UTR)-targeted primers to detect HPeV in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples of children who presented with fever or neurologic symptoms from January 1, 2013 to July 31, 2014. HPeV genotyping was performed by sequencing of the viral protein 3/1 (VP3/VP1) region. Clinical and laboratory data were abstracted from medical records retrospectively, and compared with those of enterovirus (EV)-positive patients from same period.. Results: Of 102 CSF samples, HPeV was positive in 6 (5.9 %) and co-detected in 2 of 21 EV-positive samples. All the samples were typed as HPeV3. Two HPeV-positive patients were ,3 months of age, but four others were over the age of 1 year. While HPeV-positive infants under 1 year-old presented with sepsis-like illness without definite neurologic abnomalities, HPeV-positive children over 1-year-old presented with fever and neurologic symptoms such as seizure, ...

Placental infection measured by placental smear at delivery is a standard indicator, widely used to characterize malaria infection in pregnant women. However, a single measure can hardly reflect the entire history of infection during pregnancy. To investigate the relation between this indicator and peripheral infection during pregnancy, we used data collected in a randomized trial of malaria prophylaxis in 928 pregnant women in Burkina Faso, 1987-1988, during which repeated measures of peripheral infection were taken. We analyzed placental infection using a logistic model, with two methods for handling missing data. Peripheral infection during two periods of pregnancy was significantly related to placental infection at delivery, before the fifth month: OR = 2.9 [1.3; 6.3]; after 7 months: OR = 4.9 [2.7; 8.8]). Therefore, an early peripheral infection may persist throughout gestation, and placental infection is a good indicator of the womens parasitological status during pregnancy.
Encephalitis and meningoencephalitis are severe, sometime life-threatening infections of the central nervous system. Travellers may be exposed to a variety of neurotropic pathogens. We propose to review known infectious causes of encephalitis in adults acquired outside Europe, and how to identify them. We used Pubmed and Embase, to search the most relevant publications over the last years. Microbiologic tests and radiological tools to best identify the causative pathogen in travellers presenting with encephalitis and ME are presented in this narrative review, as well as a diagnostic approach tailored to the visited area and types of exposures. This review highlights the diagnostic difficulties inherent to exotic causes of central nervous system infections, and attempts to guide clinicians with respect to which microbiological tests to consider, in addition to brain MRI, when approaching a returning traveller presenting with encephalitis.
Bacteria and yeast pathogens identified by the FilmArray ME Panel are Escherichia coli K1, Haemophilus influenzae, Listeria monocytogenes, Neisseria meningitidis, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus pneumoniae and Cryptococcus neoformans/gattii. Viruses identified by the FilmArray ME Panel are Cytomegalovirus, Enterovirus, Herpes simplex virus 1, Herpes simplex virus 2, Human herpesvirus 6, Human parechovirus, and Varicella zoster virus.. However, the FilmArray ME Panel does not detect all causes of central nervous system infections or provide information about which antimicrobial drugs may be most effective for treating bacterial infections. Physicians should continue to perform standard CSF bacterial and fungal cultures in conjunction with the FilmArray ME Panel because false negative and false positive results are possible with the FilmArray ME Panel, and bacterial growth is needed for drug susceptibility testing when results are positive. False negative results could potentially occur ...
Distributions of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and its soluble receptor forms, R55-BP and R75-BP, were analyzed in the cerebrospinal fluid of patients with severe acute or chronic central nervous system infections. Tuberculous infections were associated with high ratios of R55-BP and R75-BP to TNF, 27.2 and 28.0, respectively, suggesting a small biologically active fraction of TNF. The opposite was found in subjects with acute bacterial meningitis. They had large fractions of biologically active TNF and thus low ratios of R55-BP and R75-BP to TNF, 3.7 and 4.0, respectively. It is hypothesized that chronic infectious diseases, such as tuberculous infections, may be associated with inadequate production of TNF and a concomitant relative increase of soluble TNF receptors, which may prolong the disease ...
Background: For treatment of central nervous system infections caused by GNB, adequate cefepime concentrations are required in the cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) and brain. However, high plasma cefepime exposures have resulted in neurotoxicity. There is a need to understand the real-time pharmacokinetic (PK) relationship between plasma and CSF concentrations as serial CSF sampling is not regularly performed. Methods: Male Sprague-Dawley rats received cefepime via an internal jugular vein catheter. A total daily dose of 150 mg/kg/day was administered as a single injection every 24 hours (h) for 4 days. Plasma samples (mean n=5 per rat) was obtained via a 2nd dedicated catheter, with up to 5 samples obtained on a single concentration time curve. CSF sampling occurred via an intracisternal catheter, with up to 2 samples taken every 24h. Cefepime in plasma and CSF was quantified via LC-MS/MS. PK analyses were conducted using Pmetrics for R. Multiple physiologic compartmental models were fit, with the ...
This assessment is related to the publication of the identification of a new cyclovirus species, tentatively named cyclovirus-Vietnam (CyCV-VN), in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with acute central nervous system infection. However, there are insufficient data to assess the risk for disease occurrence in humans or potential of human-to-human transmission. Further studies should be encouraged in Europe and elsewhere to investigate the possible pathogenicity, epidemiology, and transmission patterns of cycloviruses. ...

Although COVID-19 presents as a lesser respiratory system infection transmitted via air droplets mainly, increasing data suggest multiorgan involvement in patients that are infected. whereas the introduction of cardiovascular problems, including myocardial damage, heart arrhythmias and failure, has been connected with poor success. Gastrointestinal symptoms are generally encountered and could persist for many times also. PSFL Haematological problems are frequent aswell and also have been connected with poor prognosis. Furthermore, latest studies have got reported that more than a third of contaminated patients create a broad spectral range of neurological symptoms impacting the central anxious system, peripheral nervous system and skeletal muscle tissue, including anosmia and ageusia. The skin, the kidneys, the liver, the endocrine organs Ophiopogonin D and the eyes will also be affected by the systemic COVID-19 disease. Herein, we provide a comprehensive overview of the organ-specific systemic ...
The study of the brain continues to expand at a rapid pace providing fascinating insights into the basic mechanisms underlying nervous system illnesses. New tools, ranging from genome sequencing to non-invasive imaging, and research fueled by public and private investment in biomedical research has been transformative in our understanding of nervous system diseases and has led to an explosion of published primary research articles. Diseases of the Nervous System summarizes the current state of basic and clinical knowledge for the most common neurological and neuropsychiatric conditions. In a systematic progression, each chapter covers either a single disease or a group of related disorders ranging from static insults to primary and secondary progressive neurodegenerative diseases, neurodevelopmental illnesses, illnesses resulting from nervous system infection and neuropsychiatric conditions. Chapters follow a common format and are stand-alone units, each covering disease history, clinical presentation,
In this thesis, I explore the epidemiological features of CNS infections using a population-based dataset and analyze CSF samples from patients with meningitis or encephalitis of unknown cause using molecular methods. In the second chapter, I review the literature on the epidemiology of meningitis and encephalitis, and current diagnostic approaches, focusing on the strengths and limitations of various diagnostic methods. In the third chapter, I investigate the causes of meningitis and encephalitis using a population-based dataset from the National Health Insurance Research Dataset (NHIRD) from Taiwan, representing the interval from 1996 to 2008. The analysis assesses differences in the disease between known and unknown cause groups in terms of incidence, demographic features, seasonal and geographic distribution. In the fourth chapter, I analyze CSF samples from patients with meningitis or encephalitis of unknown cause using a tiered molecular approach to discover the undetected or novel pathogens;
HIV-positive (n=1862) and HIV-negative (n=2169) men who have sex with men were included in the analyses. In the HIV-positive men, the median CD4 count was 585 cells/mm3, and the average duration of ART use was 10.6 years. The incidence of neurologic disorders was higher in HIV-positive men than in HIV-negative men. The median age of first neurologic diagnosis was 48 in the HIV-positive men compared with 57 in the HIV-negative ones. Peripheral nerve and muscle disorders (the most common diagnoses), nervous system infections, dementia, and seizures were more common in HIV-infected than in HIV-negative men; when only confirmed cases were counted, stroke was not more common in the HIV-infected group. Although this study took place during the era of effective therapy, 21% of HIV-infected patients with a neurologic disorder were not receiving ART at the time of the complication ...
