I’m sending little Jimmy over for a stat spinal tap. He has had a fever for a couple of days, which increased to 102 degrees today. Since yesterday he’s been complaining of a headache and stiff neck. His mother said last week he had gone swimming in the pond by their barn and started feeling ill a few days later. Fax results ASAP

1. What nervous system disease is Jimmy suffering from?

2. What could have caused Jimmy’s disease?
3. What structures and functions of the nervous system are affected by this disease
4. What can be done to treat this disease?
