I had some form...

I had some form of meningitis when i was 3 or 4. I did not have any problems as a result of it but wanted to know if it was likely i had type B. Both my step sister and I had it. Hers centered mainly on her brain She died about 30 years later. Is it congenital?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No. I dont have it now. I was 3 when i had it

Hi... Vaccination with haemophilus influenzae type b was started 25 years ago.
From then on the incidence has been consistently reducing and it is almost negligible now in the Western world.
But as you say that as a 3-4 year old kid you had it, it should be possible to find out if it is really haemophilus influenzae type b only by review in the old medical records of the hospital.Even know some sporadic cases of haemophilus influenzae meningitis do occur, but they are nontypable strains which are not included in the vaccine.I am extremely sorry to say that currently there is no way to find out whether you had type b or not unless you have access to the medical records done and unless they have documented well in your case record.It is hundred percent not congenital and you need not be worried about it at all.As you are neurologically completely normal now you can be 100% rest assured that you do not have any problems or complications because of here early childhood meningitis."

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
