Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Meningitis is a serious disease and the consequences and sequelae are not good.If your child is already admitted in ICU it means he is serious enough. None of us can help you sitting so far away. We can only pray for his early recovery.

Hi Naveen, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Was the Delivery of your Child through normal delivery or cesarean? Have you got him vaccinated for any disease recently? Because there are various causes for Meningitis in infants, there are two types of it, if it occurs in Infants, like Aseptic Meningitis caused by viruses and Bacterial Meningitis. I suppose it is bacterial meningitis in your child's case as Group B streptococcus is the most common bacterial etiologic agent in cases of meningitis that occur during the first month after birth. The causes could be congenital infections, drug reactions, postvaccination complications, systemic diseases, the exact cause has to be found out and Promptly treated which could happen only in an ICU set up. Do not worry, as the duration of ICU Stay, depends upon the severity of infection and the child's response to the treatment. Prompt diagnosis and treatment will definitely bring out a improved outcome.

I wish him Good Health, Take Care.

Is it safe to handle a deceased human body when death was caused by meningitis? I am an embalmer and have such a case (today). My research shows that the standard precautions including the use of full PPE are all that is required during transfer and embalming. My views have been met with opposition from quite a few people in the past. I would like to be able to address their arguments with fact.

Good afternoon. I am writing on behalf of my dear friend. Her son is just over three years old. He was hearing for the first six months of his life. He then contracted a several bacterial meningitis infection and acquired bilateral sensorineural deafness. Several standard treatments have been investigated and rejected or been ineffective. Hearing aids have proved to be unhelpful. My friend is a student of homeopathic and alternative treatments and it is her truest wish for her son to hear again. What information would I need to gather from her for you to be able to recommend a course of treatment?

I had a synovial cyst removed from the L5 area of my spine on 8 Dec 10. I was recovering well but two weeks post-op, CSF began leaking from my incision and I developed bacterial meningitis on 26 Dec 10. I was hospitalized and treated with antibiotics and then required a second surgery on 1 Jan 11 to repair the area which was leaking CSF. I feel well now and the incision is completely healed. I am wondering if it is safe for me to resume normal activities, i.e. driving, tub bathing, shovelling, etc? Thank you, Cheryl
