Infections (viral, bacterial, and fungal) are the most common causes of this condition, but subarachnoid hemorrhage (HEMORRHAGES, SUBARACHNOID), chemical irritation (chemical meningitis), granulomatous conditions, neoplastic conditions (CARCINOMATOUS meningitis), and other inflammatory conditions may produce this syndrome.
