Invasive Meningococcal disease and its prevention in children

Invasive Meningococcal Disease (IMD) is a severe infection caused by the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis, leading to potentially life-threatening conditions such as meningitis (inflammation of the brain and spinal cord membranes) and bloodstream infections. Symptoms often include high fever, severe headaches, neck stiffness, and sensitivity to light. Rapid medical attention is crucial due to the swift progression of the disease and its potential for serious complications. Preventive measures such as vaccines are important in controlling its spread.
