inflammation of the meninges- caused my microorganisms or injury- bacteria, virus, fungi and protozoans
during CNS infection (meningitis)...
increase in lymphocytes, monocytes, and proteins.CSF remains clear
During bacterial infection of meningitis...
rapid increase in granulocytes and proteins- CSF becomes trubid
inflammation of brain alters blood-brain barrier and allows drugs in- lymphatic and bloodstream
