Abstract

Aseptic meningitis can be caused by viruses, drugs, and connective tissue disorders. The most common drugs causing it include antibiotics like trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), intravenous immunoglobulins, intrathecal agents, vaccines, and monoclonal antibodies. A patient who had aseptic meningitis from three different NSAIDs including rofecoxib is presented.
