CNS Infection—Infectious Diseases

by John Fisher, MD

Infections of the nervous system—caused by pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi—are potentially life-threatening. Prompt recognition and treatment of a central nervous system (CNS) infection are crucial for patient survival. As these infections have a high morbidity and mortality, it is important to understand their etiologies, clinical courses, diagnostic challenges, and treatments.
