Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
There are several types of inflammation of the central nervous system or head, starting from
Encephalitis or inflammation of brain tissue Meningitis or inflammation of the lining of the brain Mengingoencephalitis or inflammation of the membranes and brain tissue Brain abscesses or accumulation of pus in the brain Some brain inflammation is not known the exact cause, but is often related to a weak immune system. There are 2 types of inflammation of the brain, primary infections originating from the brain itself or secondary infections where the infection originates from infections in other organs in the body. This secondary infection occurs when the infection spreads and penetrates into the brain.
some bacterial and viral infections that can cause inflammation of the brain and the lining of the brain include:
Streptococcus pneumoniae. This bacterium is usually found in the nose, sinuses, and respiratory tract. Neisseria meningitidis. This bacterium spreads through the saliva or mucus of the respiratory tract. Haemophilus influenza. Haemophilus influenza type B or Hib is a type of bacteria that can cause meningitis in children. Besides meningitis, this bacterium can also cause infections in the blood, throat, skin, and joints. Listeria monocytogenes. This type of bacteria is commonly found in foods, such as melons, cheese, and raw vegetables. Staphylococcus aureus. This type of bacteria is commonly found on the skin and respiratory tract. Herpes simplex virus, which causes herpes in the mouth and genitals. Herpes simplex is a virus that is most often found in cases of inflammation of the brain. Varicella zoster virus, which causes chicken pox and chicken pox. Epstein-Barr virus, which causes mononucleosis. Various other types of viruses, which cause measles (measles), mumps (mumps), or German measles (rubella). Viruses from animals, such as rabies viruses and viruses spread by mosquitoes and ticks. So much information from me, hopefully it helps.
