While the initial evolution of meningococcal meningitis (MM) is well described, there are few data on the long-term evolution, beyond 1 year.

The objective of this research is to evaluate the sequelae of MM beyond 1 year in patients with a history of MM followed in Paris area, France. Most children with MM in France have been included in the MM register and are still being followed. Parents will be offered a detailed clinical evaluation of their child including: a clinical and neurological examination, a cognitive performance assessment, an auditory, speech and visual assessment and an evaluation of the child's progress at school.
