Neurologic Manifestations of Acute Bacterial Infections and Sepsis

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter focuses on selected disorders associated with bacterial infection, chosen largely because they are potential reasons for neurologic consultation. Moreover, many intensive care specialists seek early help with management of bacterial meningitis, epidural abscess, complications of endocarditis, and clostridial syndromes. Infections associated with immunosuppression are discussed in Chapter 20.
