Brain Infection Injuries
An infection in the brain is a potentially deadly medical condition. A bacterial infection, such as bacterial meningitis, can cause seizures, intellectual deficits, blindness, hearing impairment and other nervous system problems.
In extreme cases, a brain infection can cause death within 48 hours.
The speed at which a brain infection can cause death makes it imperative that doctors in emergency rooms and other medical care settings diagnose brain infections correctly.
