RESUMO

Os autores apresentam o estudo de quatro crianças que tiveram arterite como complicação vascular de meningite bacteriana aguda. Apresentam revisão dos mecanismos fisiopatológicos envolvidos nas alterações vasculares que têm trazido reais progressos no entendimento dessas complicações.

Palavras-chave: meningite bacteriana aguda, arterite, complicação vascular, infância.


SUMMARY

The authors present the study of four children with arteritis as vascular complication of acute bacterial meningitis. They report pathophysiological mechanisms involved in vascular lesions, and progress in the understanding of these complications.

Key words: bacterial meningitis, arteritis, vascular complications, childhood.
