Abstract
Meningitis is a serious central nervous system disease, E. coli K1 is the main pathogen that causes it. E.coli K1 triggers meningitis only if it crosses the blood-brain barrier(BBB), but the detail mechanism of how E. coli K1 cross the blood-brain barrier is still unclear. This article is based on current research, according to the sequence of E. coli K1 crossing the blood-brain barrier, introduce the mechanism from three sections: severe bacteremia, adhesion and invasion to brain microvascular endothelial cells (BMEC), rearrangement of cytoskeleton.
