The aim is to study the features of the adaptation process in children of different ages with acute neuroinfections depending on the etiology, severity of the disease and the period of the disease using indicators of the pituitary-thyroid system. Material and Methods. A comprehensive clinical and laboratorial checkup of 237 children with different noso-logical forms of neuroinfections was carried out: meningitis: viral, enteroviral, purulent and cerebromeningitis. Control board group was composed of 15 healthy children of the identical age. All the patients underwent the thyroid-stimulating hormone and thyroid hormones blood serum level, IFA technique being used, during acuity and reconvalesence. Re-sults. The neuroinfections status of the pituitary-thyroid system depends on the period and severity of the disease and does not depend on the etiology, age and sex of the child. Conclusion. According to the indices of the pituitary-thyroid system revealed that different adaptive responses develop in neuroinfections depending on the reactivity of child's organism and severity of the disease.
