Symptom #2: Stiff Neck

A stiff neck is a symptom that is closely associated with meningitis. Listeriosis can cause meningitis in newborns and in immunocompromised patients, especially the elderly, cancer patients, and renal transplant patients as well.

It is important to know that a stiff neck can be caused by many conditions and it is not strictly related to meningitis alone, therefore, it is important to seek medical attention for proper diagnosis.
