    Sorry to hear this.

    First time I heard this kind of incident. Wondering what is meningitis and how we can prevent it.

    Meningitis is the inflammation of the membranes covering the brain.

    There is no doubt,every LTTE supporter is mentally ill.

    But in this case, MO has determined that the youth had meningitis.

    We must express our condolence over the death of the youth since he was a client of Srilankan Airline.The airline crew must be thanked for not allowing the youth to harm any other passenger on board. If something happened Sri Lanka would have another Black Mark.

    Dauntless,

    [can`t they get a head x-ray or something to check...]

    no need to go that far... simple physical examinations (just lifting patients head while he is supine) will tell us the condition.

    Then the confirmatory tests are needed.

    However if the patient is untreated for some time (as in this one) or if it is due to viral infection, the prognosis is no good.

    Hey dummy! meningitis is not a mental illness although the first three letters are the same in both words.
