  1. Tuberculous meningitis in the southwest United States : a community-based study.

    Article - En anglais

    This community-based study analyzed 54 patients with definite or probable tuberculous meningitis (TBM) in New Mexico from 1970 through 1990.

    Patients ranged in age from 4 months to 86 years.

    The highest age-specific incidence occurred in the elderly, but 22% of patients were less than 10 years old.

    Native American patients were overrepresented

    Patients were as likely to live in small towns as in large urban cities.

    Symptoms were present for a median of 13 days before admission.

    The majority of patients had fevers, headache, stiff neck, and mental changes, such as confusion or lethargy.

    No patient was admitted comatose

    Focal neurologic signs were present in 33%.
