Dr. Haralabos Zacharatos of JFK Neuroscience Institute’s Stroke & Neurovascular Center Discusses Meningitis

Attending physician at JFK Neuroscience Institute’s Stroke & Neurovascular Center Dr. Haralabos Zacharatos discusses the signs and symptoms of meningitis and the need for prompt diagnosis and proper treatment to reduce the spread of the infection. Meningitis is an infection around the brain that can cause seizures, hearing loss, or possibly death if not treated quickly. Some of the symptoms are fever, headache, stiff neck, vomiting, or a change in your behavior. If anyone exhibits these symptoms or has been around someone who has bacterial meningitis, should see a doctor as soon as possible to get tested.
