Glossary for Aseptic meningitis

Medical terms related to Aseptic meningitis or mentioned in this section include:

  • Abdominal pain: Pain in the abdominal area or stomach.
  • Abdominal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the abdomen or digestive tract
  • Acanthamoeba: Several conditions from infection with ameba.
  • Alveolar Hydatid Disease: Rare multi-organ tapeworm infection caught from animals.
  • American mountain fever: A viral disease transmitted through the bite of ticks (Rocky Mountain wood tick and American dog tick) who are infected with the virus. Because the virus infects blood cells including erythrocytes, transmission can also occur through transfusion with infected blood but this is uncommon. Infection is most common in Canada and parts of western US. The incubation period usually lasts between 3 and 6 days but can be as long as a few weeks. The virus tends to cause to periods of fever each lasting for a few days.
  • Arbovirus: Any group of viruses transmitted to humans by mosquitoes and ticks
  • Bacterial diseases: Diseases caused by a bacterial infection
  • Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
  • Candidiasis: Fungal infection of moist areas such as mouth or vagina
  • Cat scratch disease: An infectious disease transmitted through a cat's bite, scratch or lick and resulting primarily in lymph node pain and swelling. The condition can be mild or severe.
  • Chagas disease: A parasitic infection caused by the protozoa Trypanosoma cruzi and transmitted by insect bites or blood transfusions. The disease primarily involves the heart and gastrointestinal system.
  • Chickenpox: Common viral infection.
  • Chills: Excessive feeling of coldness.
  • Coccidioidomycosis: An infectious fungal disease caused by inhaling the spores of a particular bacteria. Also called desert fever, desert rheumatism, San Joaquin fever and valley fever.
  • Colorado tick encephalitis: A viral disease transmitted through the bite of ticks (Rocky Mountain wood tick and American dog tick) who are infected with the virus. Because the virus infects blood cells including erythrocytes, transmission can also occur through transfusion with infected blood but this is uncommon. Infection is most common in Canada and parts of western US. The incubation period usually lasts between 3 and 6 days but can be as long as a few weeks. The virus tends to cause to periods of fever each lasting for a few days.
  • Cryptococcosis: A fungal infection caused by Cryptococcus neoformans which primarily affects the central nervous system and the lungs. People with weakened immune systems such as AIDS sufferers are generally more susceptible to this type of infection.
  • Cysticercosis: An infectious disease caused by the pork tapeworm Taenia solium. If the larvae are ingested then a mild or asymptomatic tapeworm infection occurs. However, ingested eggs pass into the bloodstream where they can then enter various tissues and form the cysts that characterize cysticercosis.
  • Drowsiness: Excessive tiredness or sleepiness
  • Encephalitis: Infection of the brain (as a symptom)
  • Enterovirus antenatal infection: Fetal infection with enterovirus. The condition is extremely rare but infection around the time of birth often results in death or paralysis in survivors. The type and severity of symptoms is determined by the exact type of virus involved and at what stage of development the infection occurs.
  • Enteroviruses: Viruses affecting the digestive tract.
  • Fever: Raised body temperature usually with other symptoms.
  • Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
  • Headache: Pain affecting the head or brain area.
  • Herpes: Virus with one subtype causing cold sores and another causing genital herpes.
  • Histoplasmosis: Lung infection from fungus Histoplasma capsulatum
  • Infantile multisystem inflammatory disease: A rare autoinflammatory disease characterized by fever, rash, arthritic changes, eye problems and chronic meningitis.
  • Leptospirosis: Bacterial infection usually caught from animal urine.
  • Lyme disease: Lyme disease is an emerging infectious disease caused by at least three species of bacteria belonging to the genus Borrelia.
  • Lymphocytic choriomeningitis: Rodent-borne viral disease often causing meningitis or encephalitis
  • Malaise: General feelings of discomfort or being ill-at-ease.
  • Malaria: A parasitic disease transmitted through mosquito bites.
  • Measles: Once common viral infection now rare due to vaccination.
  • Mefenamic Acid -- Teratogenic Agent: There is evidence to indicate that exposure to Mefenamic Acid during pregnancy may have a teratogenic effect on the fetus. A teratogen is a substance that can cause birth defects. The likelihood and severity of defects may be affected by the level of exposure and the stage of pregnancy that the exposure occurred at.
  • Meningitis: Infection of the membrane around the brain (as a symptom)
  • Meningococcal disease: Dangerous bacterial infection causing meningitis or bacteremia.
  • Mountain fever: A viral disease transmitted through the bite of ticks (Rocky Mountain wood tick and American dog tick) who are infected with the virus. Because the virus infects blood cells including erythrocytes, transmission can also occur through transfusion with infected blood but this is uncommon. Infection is most common in Canada and parts of western US. The incubation period usually lasts between 3 and 6 days but can be as long as a few weeks. The virus tends to cause to periods of fever each lasting for a few days.
  • Mountain tick fever: A viral disease transmitted through the bite of ticks (Rocky Mountain wood tick and American dog tick) who are infected with the virus. Because the virus infects blood cells including erythrocytes, transmission can also occur through transfusion with infected blood but this is uncommon. Infection is most common in Canada and parts of western US. The incubation period usually lasts between 3 and 6 days but can be as long as a few weeks. The virus tends to cause to periods of fever each lasting for a few days.
  • Mumps: An acute viral disease that causes the salivary glands to become swollen, sore and inflamed. Immunization had greatly reduced the incidence of this disease.
  • Myalgia: Muscle aches and pains
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae: Bacterial respiratory infection

  • Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
  • Neurocysticercosis: Brain/CNS infection with the tapeworm Cysticercosis
  • Neurological symptoms: Any symptoms that are caused by neurological conditions
  • Paraneoplastic limbic encephalitis: Limbic encephalitis is an inflammation of the limbic system which is the part of the brain responsible for basic autonomic functions. In the paraneoplastic type, the inflammation is caused by cancers such as small cell lung cancer.
  • Photophobia: Dislike, sensitivity or avoidance of bright light
  • Poliomyelitis: Dangerous virus now rare due to vaccination.
  • Possible human carcinogenic exposure -- Lead: Some evidence indicates that exposure to Lead has a possible link to an increased risk of developing cancer in humans. The carcinogenicity of the substance may be influenced by the duration and level of exposure.
  • Relapsing fever: Tick-borne disease with symptoms that resolve and then relapse
  • Sarcoidosis: Rare autoimmune disease usually affecting the lungs.
  • Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
  • Skin symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skin.
