Elizabeth (Beth) Knight, a healthy 24 year old, caucasian, single mother of two, developed a sudden onset of severe headaches on August 4th, 2015. She was treated at the local ER in a town in Oklahoma and released with a diagnoses of Cephalalgia. She was released that afternoon and she went home and slept until approximately 2pm the next day.
When she awoke her friend called us and said Beth was having difficulty walking, seemed disorientated, and was vomiting with severe headaches. She was taken back to the same ER and ultimately diagnosed with Bacterial Meningitis. Treatment began when she was admitted to ICU the same night. The following morning the neurologist said she deteriorated neurologically overnight and her pupils were fixed and non responsive.
