3. Utility of Clinical and Laboratory Decision Rules in Identifying Bacterial Meningitis Among Children With suspicion of Central Nervous System Infections in a Malaria-Endemic Area, Mbarara Uganda. (PubMed)

Score and Meningitest showed lower performance than in European children, and that a decision rule designed specifically using parameters associated with bacterial meningitis also showed inadequate diagnostic performance for clinical use.

4. Distinguishing between bacterial and aseptic meningitis in children: European comparison of two clinical decision rules (PubMed)

centres in five European countries.Consecutive children aged 29 days to 18 years presenting with acute meningitis and procalcitonin (PCT) measurement. Intervention None.The sensitivity and specificity of the BMS (start antibiotics in case of seizure, positive cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) Gram staining, blood neutrophil count ≥10 ×10(9)/l, CSF protein level ≥80 mg/dl or CSF neutrophil count ≥1000 ×10(6)/l) and the Meningitest (start antibiotics in case of seizure, purpura, toxic appearance, PCT level ≥0.5 (...) ng/ml, positive CSF Gram staining or CSF protein level ≥50 mg/dl) were compared using a McNemar test.198 patients (mean age 4.8 years) from six centres in five European countries were included; 96 had bacterial meningitis. The BMS and Meningitest both showed 100% sensitivity (95% CI 96% to 100%). The BMS had a significantly higher specificity (52%, 95% CI 42% to 62% vs 36%, 95% CI 27% to 46%; p<10(-)8).The Meningitest and the BMS were both 100% sensitive. This result provides level II evidence

5. Performance of a predictive rule to distinguish bacterial and viral meningitis. (PubMed)

meningitis for children and adults. We found that our scoring tool (Meningitest) had very high performances with positive and negative predictive values of 97% and 94%, respectively.Thus, from this analysis of five meningitis scoring systems, we believe that our new tool is simple, does not need any complex calculation and is effective in identifying bacterial vs viral meningitis in fully immunocompetent children and adults.
