Rapid and accurate evaluation by history and clinical examination is helpful to guide further specific investigation and treatment.

Appraisal of Kernig's and Brudzinski's sign in meningitis
How to Recognize Kernig’s Sign
Meningism is a set of symptoms similar to those of meningitis but not caused by meningitis. It therefore requires differentiating from other CNS problems with similar symptoms, including meningitis and some types of intracranial hemorrhage. Related clinical signs include Kernig's sign and three signs all named Brudzinski's sign. In this sense, the word implies "suspected meningitis". The words "meningeal symptoms" can be used instead to avoid confusion between the word senses , thus reserving the term "meningism" for its strict sense.
