Were you looking for information about Meningitis? Miningitis is a common misspelling of meningitis.
Meningitis is an infection of the cerebrospinal fluid that surrounds the spinal cord and brain. The swelling from this can cause bleeding in the brain and may harm or destroy nerve cells. Symptoms of the condition can include discomfort when looking into bright lights, headache, and high fever. The causes of meningitis are most often a bacterial or viral infection. Bacterial meningitis is treated with antibiotics, while most people with viral meningitis recover without medications.
