Meningitis causes inflammation of the meninges which is the protective membranes surrounding the in the brain and spinal cord. The inflammation is caused by an infection in the fluid surrounding the brain or spinal. Spinal Meningitis is very serious and has to be acted on immediately. Doctors usually do a lumbar puncture, extracting some of the fluid in the spinal cord membranes and testing it. Spinal Meningitis can cause brain damage within the first 24 hours and can even be fatal. There are two types of spinal meningitis, viral and bacterial. Bacterial Spinal Meningitis is the most fatal and needs to be treated immediately with antibiotics. Viral Spinal Meningitis has no treatment and usually passes over within 7-10 days.
