Meningitis

Apa itu Meningitis ? What is Meningitis ?
Meningitis ialah radang pada bahagian meninges iaitu selaput otak dan saraf tunjang. Penyakit ini disebabkan oleh jangkitan virus atau juga bakteria.

Meningitis is a medical condition caused by inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord, known collectively as the meninges.
The inflammation is usually caused by infection with viruses, bacteria, or other microorganisms but may also arise due to certain drugs, or other diseases.Meningitis is potentially life threatening due to the inflammation’s proximity to the brain and spinal cord; it is therefore a medical emergency.
