Meningitis : In Febrile Infants

Meningitis is a serious infection that can cause inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. Infants less than three months old are at a higher risk for meningitis because their immune system is not fully developed yet. Most common symptoms of meningitis in infants are fever, irritability, poor feeding, vomiting, and a bulging fontanelle, bacterial meningitis is more severe and requires prompt treatment with antibiotics. Treatment typically involves hospitalization and intravenous antibiotics or antiviral medication, depending on the cause of the infection.
