Aseptic meningitis

Meningitis happens when the brain's lining becomes inflamed. This lining is called the meninges. Aseptic meningitis occurs when there are signs of meningitis. However, when a sample of brain fluid is taken, bacteria do not grow. This condition is often treatable. In many cases, recovery takes 7-10 days.

    Viral infection due to:
        Enterovirus (eg, Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease; Conjunctivitis)
    Sexually transmitted disease (eg, herpes, Syphilis, HIV and AIDS)
    Other viruses, such as West Nile Virus

    Parasitic infection (eg, Lyme Disease)
    Mycoplasma (a type of pneumonia)
    Fungal infection
    Bacterial Meningitis that has not been fully treated
    Certain drugs
    Autoimmune diseases (eg, Sarcoidosis, Behcet's Disease)

These factors increase the chance of developing aseptic meningitis:

    Being exposed to someone with a viral illness
    Working in a daycare or healthcare setting
    Having a compromised immune system
    Taking certain drugs (eg, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs)
    Being a child or teenager (affects children and teens more often than adults)
