Low glycorrhachia on admission has been described by various researchers as a factor associated with a less favorable prognosis, be it death or the development of complications of bacterial meningitis.
(25) observed that in types of bacterial meningitis other than those caused by Neisseria meningitidis and regardless of the duration of symptoms up to diagnosis, glycorrhachia was lower in patients who experienced a reduction in auditory and sensory-neural capacity compared to the controls, the difference being statistically significant.
Glycorrhachia was likewise not associated with death due to bacterial meningitis, (27) as in the present study.
