Meningitis is an acute inflammation of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord known collectively as the meninges. The most common symptoms are fever, headache, and neck stiffness. Other symptoms include confusion or altered consciousness, vomiting, and an inability to tolerate light or loud noises. Young children often exhibit only nonspecific symptoms like irritability, drowsiness, or poor feeding. If a rash is present it may indicate a particular cause of meningitis for instance, meningitis caused by meningococcal bacteria may be accompanied by a characteristic rash.
