Meningitis in children


ADAM is a four-month-old boy. He had a chesty cough and runny nose for a week and developed a high fever two days before he was rushed to the hospital.

He became cranky and less active, cried a lot and refused to drink milk. Adam then had a seizure that involved jerking movements of his four limbs and his eyes rolling back in his head. It lasted about five minutes, and his parents brought him to the hospital immediately.
