Meningococcemia complications

Complications could include:

  • Septic shock is a complication of an infection in which toxins can initiate a full-body inflammatory response and organ failure. Confusion, breathing problems, chills, and cold sweats.
  • Pericarditis is a condition in which the sac surrounding your heart, called the pericardium, becomes swollen and inflamed. You can develop this condition after having a heart attack.
  • The symptoms of pericarditis are generally sharp and made worse by deep breathing. Sharp chest pain occurs when the inflammed pericardium rubs against the chest wall.
  • Arthritis is inflammation of the joints (where bones meet) in one or more areas of the body. This condition is most commonly seen in adults, but it can also develop in children and teens.
