Summaries for Meningococcal Infection

MedlinePlus : 42 Meningococci are a type of bacteria that cause serious infections. The most common infection is meningitis, which is an inflammation of the thin tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Meningococci can also cause other problems, including a serious bloodstream infection called sepsis. Meningococcal infections can spread from person to person. Risk factors include Age - it is more common in infants, teens, and young adults Living in close quarters, such as in college dorms or military settings Certain medical conditions, such as not having a spleen Travel to areas where meningococcal disease is common In its early stages, you may have flu-like symptoms and a stiff neck. But the disease can progress quickly and can be fatal. Early diagnosis and treatment are extremely important. Lab tests on your blood and cerebrospinal fluid can tell if you have it. Treatment is with antibiotics. Since the infection spreads from person to person, family members may also need to be treated. A vaccine can prevent meningococcal infections.

MalaCards based summary : Meningococcal Infection, also known as meningococcal infections, is related to respiratory failure and cerebral palsy, and has symptoms including fever and pruritus. An important gene associated with Meningococcal Infection is ADD1 (Adducin 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Aldosterone synthesis and secretion and Calcium signaling pathway. The drugs Amphotericin B and Phenytoin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spleen, spinal cord and brain, and related phenotype is cardiovascular system.
