This paper presents a case study of bacterial meningitis and emphasizes the pertinent patient (host) characteristics. The paper describes the etiologic agent and highlights its virulence factors. The paper discusses the pathogenesis, which focuses on the patient's clinical findings which predispose him to the microbe discussed.
From the Paper:"This is the case of a 37 year old African American male with a diagnosed case of sickle-cell anemia who presented to the emergency department with changes in sensorium of two days duration. The patient was apparently fine until one week prior to admission when he was noted to be "irritable and restless." There was no apparent cause and was only noted to "stay indoors more" in a dimly lit room and have a slight fever noted by touch, which was undocumented and apparently subsided. No shortness of breath, coughs, sinus pain, headache, earache, sore throat, loss of consciousness or changes in sensorium were noted at the time."
