  • Cerebrospinal fluid cytology in nonmalignant aseptic meningeal disorders. [Review]
    Diagn Cytopathol 2017; 45(11):1020-1029Martínez-Girón R, Pantanowitz L
  • Cerebrospinal fluid cytology examination is a common and reliable primary and/or complementary procedure for the diagnosis of central nervous system (CNS) disorders. This review provides an update of aseptic meningeal disorders that may be encountered in cytopathology practice. The article covers the cytological findings and helpful ancillary studies needed of nonmalignant aseptic CNS disorders s…
  • Recurrent Meningitis. [Review]
    Curr Pain Headache Rep 2017; 21(7):33Rosenberg J, Galen BT
  • Recurrent meningitis is a rare clinical scenario that can be self-limiting or life threatening depending on the underlying etiology. This review describes the causes, risk factors, treatment, and prognosis for recurrent meningitis. As a general overview of a broad topic, the aim of this review is to provide clinicians with a comprehensive differential diagnosis to aide in the evaluation and manag…
  • Extramedullary spinal teratoma presenting with recurrent aseptic meningitis. [Case Reports]
    Pediatr Neurol 2014; 50(6):655-7Mpayo LL, Liu XH, … Yang L
  • CONCLUSIONS: As the symptomatic attacks of spontaneous rupture of spinal teratoma resemble presentations of Mollaret meningitis, spinal teratoma should be considered in the differential diagnosis of Mollaret meningitis. We describe a rare example of spinal teratoma causing recurrent meningitis. Spine imaging should be considered in individuals with recurrent aseptic meningitis as this promotes earlier diagnosis, more appropriate treatment, and improved neurological outcome.
  • Herpes simplex virus type 2-associated recurrent aseptic (Mollaret's) meningitis in genitourinary medicine clinic: a case report. [Case Reports]
    Int Med Case Rep J 2014; 7:31-3Abou-Foul AK, Buhary TM, Gayed SL
  • CONCLUSIONS: Mollaret's meningitis is a rare form of idiopathic recurrent aseptic meningitis that has a sudden onset, short duration, and spontaneous remission with unpredictable recurrence. We believe that the presence of concurrent or recurrent mucocutaneous herpetic lesions can aid its diagnosis, prior to which, affected patients usually have many unnecessary investigations and treatments. Therefore, detailed sexual history should be sought in all patients with aseptic meningitis, and clinicians should also ask about history of recurrent headaches in all patients with recurrent herpetic anogenital lesions. Continuous suppressive acyclovir therapy may reduce the frequency and severity of attacks and can dramatically improve lifestyle.
  • [A case of colchicine-responsive Mollaret's meningitis with MEFV gene mutation]. [Case Reports]
    Rinsho Shinkeigaku 2014; 54(2):124-9Kinohshita T, Matsushima A, … Yahikozawa H
  • A 66-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with recurrent meningitis. She presented with 10 episodes of meningitis in 10 months. Examination of cerebrospinal fluid demonstrated pleocytosis, with neutrophils dominant at the early stage, and lymphocytes dominant at the late stage. Mollaret cells were found and the level of IL-6 was increased in cerebrospinal fluid. Several antibiotics and ant…
