Problems Associated with Meningitis

Problems Associated with Meningitis

While many people may know about the seriousness of meningitis, what exactly the ailment does or where it affects is less widely understood. Meningitis affects the meninges, a group of tissue layers that cushion the brain from the skull as well as providing some basic vital functions. As meningitis is defined as the inflammation of these layers, the resulting damages may prove extremely dangerous. If suspected, physicians must act quickly to provide patients with treatment to reduce the possibility of life-threatening brain damage.

When a physician fails to provide assistance in a timely manner, the results can be devastating. Contact the Charleston personal injury attorneys of the Steinberg Law Firm today by calling 843-720-2800 if you have suffered because of a physician’s negligence.


As the tissue around the brain expands from inflammation, the subsequent damage to the brain can threaten the life-sustaining functions of the brain. Problems with meningitis can develop quickly, leaving patients with little time to receive necessary treatments. These complications may include the following:

  • Unstable body temperature, heartbeat, and respiration
  • Gangrene
  • Low blood pressure
  • Encephalitis
  • Seizures
  • Blood clotting
  • Lost consciousness

These symptoms and complications can have serious repercussions on an individual’s health. Physicians have a duty to provide prompt diagnoses and produce reasonable treatment programs within a short timeframe, and when they fail in this duty, patients suffer.
