Description

Rapid diagnosis and treatment of infectious meningitis and encephalitis (ME) are critical to minimize morbidity and mortality. Comprehensive testing of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) often includes Gram stain, culture, antigen detection, and molecular methods, paired with chemical and cellular analysis. In this session, the epidemiology of infectious ME will be reviewed. The pros and cons of testing methods will be discussed with a focus on the newer amplified molecular tests that are now available.
