Objective: Ultrasonographic characterization of intracranial pathologies with respect to acute bacterial meningitis and its sequale. Materials and methods: A prospective study of 70 cases, below 12 months of age within a period of two years, was undertaken to characterize sonographic abnormalities in acute bacterial meningitis and its sequale. Results: Echogenic sulci, ventriculomegaly and ventriculitis were the findings observed on ultrasonography in cases with acute bacterial meningitis and its sequale. Conclusion: Infantile transcranial ultrasonography is an useful diagnostic tool for rapid, safe and fairly accurate evaluation of intracranial pathologies in relation to acute bacterial meningitis and its sequale.
