CSF leakage

A study about bacterial meningitis in patients with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leakage was published in Clinical Infectious Diseases

A nationwide, observational, cohort study in The Netherlands, called the MeninGene Study, prospectively included 2022 episodes of community-acquired bacterial meningitis over a 12-year period

Study authors concluded that, “CSF leakage should be suspected in patients with bacterial meningitis presenting with liquorrhoea, recurrent meningitis or with disease caused by H influenzae.”

Results showed that despite surgical repair or vaccination, bacterial meningitis in patients with CSF leakage has a high recurrence rate, but the outcome is generally favorable.
