|i'm all ok reading about the different complications and all until i get to meningitis.|
|is he more susceptible to this side effect from mumps, because of his history|
|Meningitis is usually bacterial or viral, and occasionally is due to fungal infections, although almost any microbe can cause it.
Viral meningitis can be very unpleasant but it is almost never life threatening and most people quickly make a full recovery.
Bacterial meningitis is more serious and can be caused by a range of different bacteria, although most cases in the UK and Ireland are caused by meningococcal bacteria.

i know mumps are caused by a virus, but i don't assume that the meningitis would be viral, mostly because i have never really researched mumps.
( LI, I hope you aren't irritated by my asking for verification. I just would like to be sure.)
