Answer

Patients have developed febrile meningeal syndromes shortly after undergoing embolization of cerebral aneurysms with hydrogel-coated coils. [9]

Postoperative aseptic meningitis was first described by Cushing in 1925, [10] though the mechanisms remain unclear.

Go to Meningitis, Meningococcal Meningitis, Staphylococcal Meningitis, Haemophilus Meningitis, Viral Meningitis, and Tuberculous Meningitis for more complete information on these topics.
