Meningitis affects the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord – which means it’s pretty serious. Carried by a number of bacteria and viruses, meningitis can cause headaches, a stiff neck and sensitivity to light and sound. A deadly type of meningitis, known as meningococcal, can result in red or purple rashes on the body; sometimes amputation of limbs is required. Luckily, vaccinations have been developed to provide protection against some forms of meningitis. Definitely not a disease you want to catch, unless you want a massive pain in the neck!

Giant Microbes make excellent teaching aids as they assist students to develop an understanding of biology while taking a fun, hands on approach.

Not for children under three years of age as parts may dislodge and become a choking hazard.

Meningitis is 130mm long, 120mm wide and 75mm thick, made of grey medium-pile polyester plush with polyester filling and plastic eyes.
