Overview

Fulminant meningococcemia is a medical emergency and need to be treated with adequate antibiotics as fast as possible. Benzyl penicillin is the drug of choice with chloramphenicol as a good alternative in allergic patients. Hydrocortisone can sometimes reverse the hypoadrenal shock. Sometimes plastic surgery and grafting is needed to deal with tissue necrosis. Ceftriaxone is an antibiotic commonly employed today.
