Frequently Asked Questions
Will you still be focusing on Mollaret's meningitis?
Yes. Our primary focus will still be on recurrent viral meningitis, also known as Mollaret’s meningitis. We will be putting more focus on using the term recurrent viral meningitis, but will still include the term Mollaret’s for a while since that name is still associated with the condition. The medical world is moving away from using the name of individuals to describe disease and we believe that is the correct decision.
Why change the name?
There are many reasons we decided to change the name. Some of them are:
- Easier to remember name
- Easier to remember website
- More descriptive of the disease
- Allow for more people to find us to get support
- Allow for future growth to potentially support those with other types of recurrent meningitis
