Abstract

Objective- The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency and type of consequences, as well as their presence and distribution in patients with a history of acute bacterial meningitis (ABM) in relation to gender, age, etiology and duration of symptoms prior to admittance to hospital.

Results-A total of 89 patients, 69.6% had full recovery, 14.7% had sequelae and 15.7% lethal outcome. Audio-logical and focal sequelae were most frequently observed.
