Intracranial infections (also called central nervous system infections or CNS infections) are relatively rare, but form a very important differential diagnosis in the unwell patient. It is essential to suspect and expedite treatment because consequences of a missed CNS infection are severe.


By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Identify the major causes of CNS infection
• Distinguish between those seen in immunocompromised and non-immunocompromised patients, and highlight those of particular concern in people returning from travel abroad
• Explain how to differentiate, on clinical grounds, the relevant infections in the above groups
• Formulate a pragmatic approach to the investigations required to determine the cause
• Explain the current treatment recommendations for the most important causes of intracranial infection
