Practice guidelines for the management of bacterial meningitis.
Allan R. Tunkel, Barry J. Hartman, Sheldon L. Kaplan, Bruce A. Kaufman, Karen L. Roos, W. Michael Scheld, and Richard J. Scheld are the authors of this study, which aims to contribute to the understanding of central nervous system disorders and its role in disease.

The guideline includes data on the epidemiology, clinical features, diagnosis, and treatment of many viral, bacterial, fungal, protozoal, and helminthic etiologies of encephalitis and provides information on when specific etiologic agents should be considered in individual patients with encephalopathy.

If the antimicrobial resistance crisis is to be addressed, a concerted, grassroots effort led by the medical community will be required and could mean a literal return to the preantibiotic era for many types of infections.
A Randomized Trial Comparing Fluconazole with Amphotericin B for the Treatment of Candidemia in Patients without Neutropenia
A multicenter randomized trial that compared amphotericin B with fluconazole as treatment for candidemia, with the most common diagnoses being renal failure, nonhematologic cancer, and gastrointestinal disease.

In nonneutropenic subjects, the combination of fluconazole plus AmB was not antagonistic compared with flu Conazole alone, and the combination trended toward improved success and more-rapid clearance from the bloodstream.

The molecular mechanisms responsible for oxidant-induced neuronal injury in meningitis are explored and genetic targeting and/or pharmacologic blockade of the implicated pathways may be a future strategy for therapeutic adjunctive measures to improve outcome.
Infectious etiologies of rhabdomyolysis: three case reports and review.
This study describes representative recent cases of rhabdomyolysis induced by influenza from an institution and details the wide variety of infections that can cause muscle damage.
Bacterial meningitis: pathogenesis, pathophysiology, and progress.
The mortality rate for adults who have Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis remains 20 to 30 percent, with neurologic morbidity affecting half of survivors, and the incidence of persistent sensorineural hearing loss in children who survive bacterialmeningitis is 10 percent.
