Once your doctor reviews your symptoms and medical history, he or she will perform a physical examination and order blood tests or a cerebrospinal fluid culture to find the bacteria.
Additional tests will be requested if he or she suspects complications, such as:
- Cardiac ultrasound.
- Computed tomography.
The treatment plan focuses on suppressing symptoms, avoiding recurrence, and preventing serious complications, so it is based on the intake of antibiotics for several months, which does not guarantee that the infection will disappear, so it can be recurrent and become a chronic condition.
