Brief Summary:
The limited available data precludes establishing an antibiotic regimen in patients suffering from bacterial meningitis after head trauma, or spontaneous bleeding Understanding the disposition of Amikacin administered intrathecally will enable to propose rational treatment of these patients.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:
