Conclusion

  • Cranial sonography plays an important role in the initial evaluation of infants with suspected bacterial meningitis and in monitoring for complications of the disease.
  • Its utility is enhanced by the use of alternative scanning approaches and Doppler techniques for identification of ventriculitis, extra-axial fluid collections, and hemodynamic alterations.
  • Early diagnosis of the primary disease and its complications is essential for the prevention of neurodevelopmental sequelae.
