Meningitis and Encephalitis are Different

Anxious parents in the state of California heaved a sigh of relief when the health officials announced that there was no relation between the meningitis// and the encephalitis cases which were described in the state.

Officials have clearly indicated that the bacteria, which cause these two infections, are completely different. Encephalitis is caused by mycoplasma bacteria while meningitis is usually caused by viral or bacterial infection.

An elementary school student in California was diagnosed with meningitis and subsequently three other cases in Warwick and West Warwick were being treated for encephalitis. This has raised the panic buttons in the state. But the apprehensions and fears of people were put to rest with health officials describing the two indications as totally different and are found to be caused by different bacteria. Meanwhile the three cases of encephalitis are being examined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Though the schools in the area were closed, they would remain open from tomorrow with this announcement from the health authorities.
