Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A retrospective study was carried out at Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana (Punjab) during the period from January 1985 to June 1990 to know the incidence of meningococcal meningitis. Meningococcal etiology was established in 170 (49.41%) cases out of 344 cases of bacterial meningitis. Out of 170 cases of meningococcal meningitis, 74 (43.52%) were positive only by smear examination, 90 (52.94%) were positive both by smear as well as culture and there were six (3.52%) cases which were positive only by culture. The organisms were sensitive to most of the common antibiotics including penicillin, chloramphenicol, ampicillin and sulphadiazine.
