Most of these algorithms aim to discriminate bacterial from aseptic (viral) meningitis in paediatric populations118, and can be used in patients with suspected acute bacterial meningitis to determine whether a patient needs further diagnostic studies (for example, CSF analysis) or immediate therapy117. The decreasing proportion of disease caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) and, later, Streptococcus pneumoniae (SP) and the increase in overall age of remaining cases show the effect of routine infant vaccination programmes. Involvement of the brain cortex and parenchyma, because of either direct inflammation or vascular complications, might result in behavioural changes, focal neurological abnormalities and impairment of consciousness1, which are typically considered symptoms of encephalitis. E. coli K1 binding to and invasion of the brain endothelium is thought to involve several bacterial proteins, including the type 1 fimbrial adhesion protein FimH, cytotoxic necrotizing factor 1 (CNF1), invasion of brain endothelial cell proteins (Ibe) and OmpA.

Certain serotypes or serogroups of the leading pathogens that cause bacterial meningitis have been shown to have a higher ability to cause severe disease than others. Finally, besides coping with host defence mechanisms, to survive in the bloodstream, microbial invaders have to exploit the host iron pool. Blood-borne pathogen invasion is assumed to be the main route of subarachnoid space entry; this multistep process involves mucosal colonization followed by invasion, survival and replication of the bacteria in the bloodstream and eventual traversal of the blood–brain barrier. The surface protein HvgA mediates group B streptococcus hypervirulence and meningeal tropism in neonates. 42, 772–776 (2010).

Auburtin, M. et al. & van de Beek, D. Genetic variation and cerebrospinal fluid levels of mannose binding lectin in pneumococcal meningitis patients. Dis. JAMA 262, 2700–2707 (1989). Damaged bacterial cells can release alarm signals (so-called damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs)), including myeloid-related protein 14 (MRP14) and high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), which can fuel inflammation by interacting with PRRs, such as TLR4 and receptor for advanced glycation end products (RAGE). Furthermore, other genetic variations have recently been linked to predisposition to pneumococcal disease (for example, single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in NFKBIA (which encodes nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) inhibitor-α (IκBα)), or deficiencies in IL-1 receptor-associated kinase 4 (IRAK4) as well as myeloid differentiation primary response protein 88 (MYD88)) and meningococcal disease (for example, SNPs in pattern recognition receptor (PRR) genes, such as Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9))29,39–41. Fever and seizures affect <40% and <35% of infected babies, respectively109. In March 2008, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) revised the susceptibility breakpoints of penicillin against S. pneumoniae. J. Biol. Rep. 6, 29351 (2016). In cell culture experiments, NLRP3 activation was induced through pore-building bacterial toxins, such as pneumolysin (Ply)83,84.

Other contraindications for immediate lumbar puncture are coagulation disorders, septic shock and respiratory failure2. The overall rates of community-acquired bacterial meningitis caused by specific aetiologies in Africa remain unclear owing to a lack of diagnostic tools. Blood–brain barrier invasion by group B Streptococcus depends upon proper cell-surface anchoring of lipoteichoic acid. Regarding the pathogens, multilocus sequence typing of N. meningitidis has demonstrated that strains associated with asymptomatic carriage are highly genetically diverse, as the bacterial genome undergoes horizontal gene exchange and recombinant events while the bacteria colonize the nasopharynx, whereas only a limited number of genotypes, known as hyperinvasive lineages, are linked with invasive disease11,42. Nat. Temperature triggers immune evasion by Neisseria meningitidis. Dis. This process in N. meningitidis includes the pilus components PilE and PilV, which mediate bacterial adhesion by interacting with the immunoglobulin superfamily member CD147 on the host endothelial cells62. Adjuvant glycerol and/or dexamethasone to improve the outcomes of childhood bacterial meningitis: a prospective, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial. Guidelines recommend suspending dexamethasone treatment if the bacterial meningitis diagnosis is not confirmed or if the causative pathogen is other than H. influenzae or S. pneumoniae (although some experts advise dexamethasone to be continued irrespective of the meningeal pathogen)109.

Furthermore, one systematic assessment of the development of early symptoms in children and adolescents with meningococcal disease (including sepsis) in the United Kingdom showed that rash, impaired consciousness and the other typical meningitis signs develop late in the pre-hospital illness, if at all, implicating that physicians should be aware that early recognition of bacterial meningitis can be difficult111. In addition, sialylated capsular polysaccharides of group B streptococci can engage inhibitory receptors, such as sialic acid-recognizing immunoglobulin superfamily lectin 9 (Siglec9) on host leukocytes, thereby downregulating their immune responsiveness54. Classic abnormalities of the CSF in bacterial meningitis include pleocytosis (mainly of polymorphic leukocytes), low glucose concentration and increased protein levels117, which are signs of a self-propelling inflammatory response in the subarachnoid space caused by the accelerating bacterial growth.
