2004). A negative LAT result does not exclude the specific infection and therefore does not appear to modify the decision to give antibiotics. Elevated serum procalcitonin (>5µg/L) (Dubos et al. 2008), CSF lactate above 35mg/dL, and serum C-reactive protein above 50mg/dL may be useful to differentiate between bacterial and aseptic meningitis. A low C-reactive protein (<10mg/dL) has a high negative predictive value for bacterial meningitis. Bacterial and viral DNA detection by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for common organisms is available and is undergoing refinement.

Fluid, electrolytes and nutrition Most children with CNS infections have alteration in their fluid and electrolyte homeostasis that needs correction. Fever, diminished intake and vomiting may lead to dehydration and hypovolaemia; sepsis-induced capillary leak can further worsen the situation. Dehydration often unveils in the form of a sudden fall in blood pressure when patients are placed on a mechanical ventilator. The main goals of fluid therapy are to maintain euvolaemia and normoglycaemia, and to prevent hyponatraemia.
