Most people never get meningitis. For those who do, it is rare to experience it more than once. But if it recurs, red flags should be going up. Dr. Jon Rosenberg joins Jim Siegler this week in a discussion about the causes and management of recurrent meningitis.

Produced by James E Siegler. Music by Lee Rosevere, Fatal Injection, and Coldnoise. Voiceover by Erika Mejia.
