Delays in diagnosing meningitis can have tragic outcomes.

Meningitis is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed infectious diseases. Delays can result in septicaemia, amputations, brain damage or spinal cord damage. This can lead to epilepsy, deafness and lack of mental capacity.

Meningitis can also be life-threatening so emergency attention is needed.
