    Meningococci are classified by using serologic methods based on the structure of the polysaccharide capsule. Thirteen antigenically and chemically distinct polysaccharide capsules have been described. Some strains, often those found to cause asymptomatic nasopharyngeal carriage, are not groupable and do not have a capsule.

The most common infection is meningitis, which is an inflammation of the thin tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. Meningococci can also cause other problems, including a serious bloodstream infection called sepsis.

Meningococcal infections can spread from person to person. Prevalence studies indicate that 20% to 40% of children and 5% to 10% of adults are colonized at a given time. From the nasopharynx, pneumococci have access to the eustachian tubes, the ostia to the paranasal sinuses, and the tracheobronchial tree.
