Recruitment Status : Completed
First Posted : November 21, 2012

Major changes in the epidemiological characteristics of bacterial meningitis have been observed as a result of changes in behaviour, human interventions (use of antibiotics, prophylactic vaccinations), as well as poorly elucidated mechanisms responsible for epidemic outbreaks.
The objective of this study is to identify the determinants of in-hospital mortality of bacterial meningitis in adults.
Hypothesis : the standardized data collection concerning cases of bacterial meningitis in adults with telephone follow-up would allow analysis of the determinants of mortality and neurosensory sequelae, description of the psychosocial impact and proposal of new treatment strategies.
