The Two Forms of Meningitis

There are two different types of meningitis and there is a significant difference between the two. The first type of meningitis is viral meningitis and this is the most common form of it. Thankfully, it is not very harmful and can be easily treated. The second form of meningitis is bacterial meningitis and while it is rare it is also extremely dangerous. That is why it is critical for doctors to properly diagnose which form of meningitis one may acquire. If the doctors are inaccurate in their diagnosis then the doctor may be held liable as the patient's health will be placed at severe risk.
