Were you looking for information about Meningitis? Meningits is a common misspelling of meningitis.
Meningitis is an infection that causes swelling (inflammation) in the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. It is most commonly caused by a viral or bacterial infection, but can also be caused by a fungal infection, a reaction to certain medications, or a traumatic injury to the head or spine. Neck stiffness, fever, and headache are some of the classic symptoms of meningitis. Treatment often involves taking antibiotics, but will depend on the specific type.
