Description "The central nervous system (CNS) is anatomically protected from invasion by most organisms by structures such as bone, fibrous membranes, and vascular tight junctions (1-3). Nevertheless, once organisms gain entry to the CNS, they proliferate more easily than almost anywhere else in the body."
Abstract "The central nervous system (CNS) is anatomically protected from invasion by most organisms by structures such as bone, fibrous membranes, and vascular tight junctions (1-3). Nevertheless, once organisms gain entry to the CNS, they proliferate more easily than almost anywhere else in the body. The natural immunity of the CNS is relatively ineffective, so normally nonpathogenic organisms can become pathogenic, and weak pathogens become virulent. When disease or cytotoxic agents further impair immunity, opportunistic infections by rarely encountered bacteria, fungi, parasites, or viruses may develop."
