Meningitis . . .

This is part of a write up on medicine management at NJH put up by Dr. Roshine. First of a series, this post gives a glance of meningitis case management at NJH over the last 6 months. 

We have been particularly alarmed at the number of patients diagnosed with probable TB meningitis, many of whom have had atypical presentations. In our setting where patients come to us as at the last resort, to be able to diagnose TB meningitis confidently and initiate therapy early is vital. We have compiled the statistics over the past 5 months and are awaiting further inputs from the medical fraternity. We had an opportunity to present it in a recent CME on TB at the district level. We would value inputs on this. Kindly go through the following set of information.
