Caption: Brain with bacterial meningitis. Gross specimen of a brain showing bacterial infection of the meninges, the linings that protect the brain and spinal cord. The infection shows up as inflammatory exudates, yellow in colour, and results in necrosis (cell death) of brain tissues due to vessel thrombosis and ischemia. Bacterial meningitis is a life-threatening condition that requires emergency medical treatment. Symptoms include a stiff neck, aversion to light and a headache. A skin rash may also be present. Treatment is with high doses of intravenous antibiotics.
