mortality and morbidity. Crucial factors for improving outcome are a quick diagnostic work-up, the swift start of empiric antibiotic treatment and, in pneumococcal meningitis, adjunctive therapy with dexamethasone. One important reason for the poor outcome is the frequent development of intracranial complications. In the postgraduate education course “acute bacterial CNS infections of the brain”, the first focus will be on the diagnostic work-up of patients with suspected CNS infections. The second focus will concentrate on thetherapeutic management and, finally, the participants will learn how to deal with intracranial complications in CNS infections. The majority of the session will take place in groups under the guidance of expert senior physicians on CNS infections. This setting will ensure an intense and interactive teaching atmosphere. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to prescribe a diagnosis panel according to epidemiology and clinical presentation, to propose an adapted treatment, to understand future developments of research in the field of neurological infections
