According to the Department of Health, meningococcemia is a bacterial infection caused by Neisseria meningitides, the same type of bacteria that causes meningitis.
It is well known that Neisseria meningitides can penetrate the cribriform plate and reach the meninges causing meningitis.
Several countries in Europe, South America, and Australia are experiencing outbreaks of group W meningococcal (MenW) disease, caused by a hypervirulent strain of Neisseria meningitides belonging to sequence type 11 (ST11) clonal complex (CC) and associated with severe disease and a high case-fatality rate (1).
Other pathogenic organisms include Listeria monocytogenes, Neisseria meningitides, N.
6 These SSRs are reported to be associated with pathogenic bacteria adaptation and virulence such as Bordetella pertussis, Campylobacter jejuni, Helicobacterpylori, Haemophilus influenzae and Neisseria meningitides.
Blood cultures, which were drawn before antibiotic treatment, were positive for Neisseria meningitides of indeterminate serogroup.

Listeria monocytogenes is one of the most common causes of acute bacterial CNS infections, after Streptococcus pneumoniae and Neisseria meningitides, and the frequency rate is 4-12% in a number of ountries in the northern hemisphere [9-11].
The proposed guideline begins with testing clinical specimens of Neisseria meningitides.
