Diagnosis of ventricular drainage-related bacterial meningitis by broad-range real-time polymerase chain reaction.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To compare a broad-range real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) diagnostic strategy with culture to evaluate additional effects on the etiological diagnosis and the quantification of the bacterial load during the course of ventricular drainage-related bacterial meningitis (VR-BM). METHODS We applied a PCR that targeted conserved regions of… (More)
