Neuroinfections encompass a range of infections that affect the central nervous system, including meningitis, encephalitis, and brain abscesses. These infections can be caused by various pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Accurate and rapid diagnosis is paramount for effective treatment, as delays can result in severe neurological damage or even death. Diagnostic methods often involve a combination of clinical assessments, imaging studies, and laboratory tests, including lumbar punctures and molecular diagnostics like PCR. Timely intervention with appropriate antibiotics or antivirals can make a significant difference in patient outcomes.
