Abstract

Although a relatively uncommon infectious disease, meningitis is one of the most severe. In the United States approximately 30,000 infants and children develop bacterial meningitis yearly, and as many as 10% of these die. One-third have permanent long-term complications.145 Add to these three times as many children with viral meningitis, as well as those suffering from tuberculous, fungal, and other causes of meningeal inflammation, and the toll becomes even greater. Genetic factors play a role, as witnessed by reports of intrafamilial disease43 and the high incidence of Haemophilus meningitis in Alaskan Eskimos.235
