More than 60% of emerging infectious diseases are zoonotic, which means they can be transmitted from animals to humans. One bacterial infection with this characteristic is meningitis. Anusha van Samkar describes cases of menigitis caused by a number of different zoonotic pathogens using data from a nationwide cohort study of bacterial meningitis patients in the Netherlands. The aim is to investigate the epidemiology, etiology, clinical characteristics, treatment, outcome and prevention of the disease.
