Abstract

Community-acquired acute bacterial meningitis is a fulminant disease with a mortality of 10--30% and high risk for permanent neurologic or hearing deficit [1--4]. It is one of the most urgent treatable conditions because the patients may deteriorate to coma and death within 24--72 h, and early adequate treatment is pivotal for survival and a favorable outcome.
