Meningococcal Disease (General): DBMD (Excerpt)
High fever, headache, and stiff neck are common symptoms of meningitis
in anyone over the age of 2 years. These symptoms can develop
over several hours, or they may take 1 to 2 days. Other symptoms
may include nausea, vomiting, discomfort looking into bright lights,
confusion, and sleepiness. In newborns and small infants, the
classic symptoms of fever, headache, and neck stiffness may be
absent or difficult to detect, and the infant may only appear
slow or inactive, or be irritable, have vomiting, or be feeding
poorly. As the disease progresses, patients of any age may have
seizures. (Source: excerpt from Meningococcal Disease (General): DBMD)
