Meningitis gets its name from the fact that the disease is char- acterized by an inflammation of the covering, or meninges, of the brain and spinal cord. It often strikes in epidemics, is extremely contagious, and its most frequent victims are children and young adults. This disease sometimes known as brain fever was fatal in almost _ , .... ]. every case until  1906, when all  '] " anti-meningitis serum was de- veloped which cut the existing "  mortality rate in half. Even as --late as 1928, however, fatalities due to the meningitis epidenUc of that year reached 50 per cent. With the introduction ef the sul- fa drugs, and later the antibiotics, a drastic reduction in the menin- gitis mortality rate occurrcd. Re- cently, for example, two Seattle doctors reported that only one out of 30 cases of meningitis in chil- dren proved fatal. Treatment in these cases consisted of a combina- tion of sulfadiazine and terramycin. But despite advances in treat- ment, meningitis is still a danger- Ous disease. One of the biggest dangers is that though the patient may live the inflammation may have time to permanently darn'age the brain or nervous system. To prevent this, doctors regard it as essential that the disease be recog- nized and treated at an early stage. Since meningitis may be caused by several different microbes, a tap of the spinal fluid must be taken to isolate and identify the spc'!(ic disease-causing organism.  im- portant is a quick diag,:' hat this is often ac:omplished v,,i[i, n a half hour arrival at the h::3- vital.
