Abstract

Acute bacterial infections of the central nervous system include meningitis, brain abscess, subdural empyema, epidural abscess, and septic venous sinus thrombosis. The etiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and management of each of these infections are discussed, emphasizing recognition based on symptoms, signs, and predisposing conditions. Choosing the best available diagnostic studies and antimicrobial and adjunctive therapy minimizes possible neurologic complications.
