Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Meningitis is inflammation of the brain covering membrane. Inflammation of the lining of the brain can be caused by various things, such as viral infections, bacterial infections, atypical bacterial infections (such as tuberculosis), fungal infections (usually in people with HIV), as well as other less common causes (such as drug allergic reactions, cancer certain, sarcoidosis, etc.). Management for each cause of meningitis is certainly different. For meningitis due to viral infections, for example, it is also important to see what the virus is causing, some viral infections do not require special therapy, while some other viral infections require anti-viral therapy. Bacterial meningitis must be treated with antibiotics, but the selection of antibiotics must also be adjusted to the bacteria that causes it. Meningitis due to other causes also has its own treatment. The prognosis (possibility of recovery) of each of the causes of meningitis above also varies.
Since your friend is currently hospitalized, you can ask the doctor directly treating your friend, the cause of your friend's meningitis and the treatment plan for your friend.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
