Bacterial meningitis is a cataclysmal contagious malady associated with high risk of permanent disability & special deformation in survivors and substantial mortality. Characterization of bacterial meningitis is carried out by the two ways, either by the growth of bacteria in the compartment where inflammation has been occurred within the CSF and the adjacent brain tissue or by the entrance of bacteria into the cerebrospinal fluid. Allopathic treatment for meningitis is based on clinical subgroups and causative micro-organisms. Mainly meningitis is treated by antibiotics, steroids, and oxygen therapy as supportive care. Ayurvedic treatment for meningitis is based on strengthening the immune system with the help of various herbs which have specific medicinal properties. Ayurvedic treatment can be continued along with modern treatment to prevent complications.
