Abstract

Brighton Collaboration (BC) case definitions are independent from presumed causes or triggers, hence should be applicable in routine clinical settings.; 255 cases with discharge diagnoses of aseptic meningitis (ASM; n=164), encephalitis (ENC; n=48), myelitis (MYE; n=8), ADEM (n=10), or bacterial meningitis (BM; n=59; control group) were tested against the BC case definitions ASM, ENC, MYE, and ADEM. Overall rates of agreement between BC criteria and discharge diagnoses were 70%, 78%, 97%, and 97% for ASM, ENC, MYE and ADEM, respectively.; BC case definitions are easily applicable in retrospective chart reviews allowing causality assessments with minimal selection bias.
