This is an interesting question.  It would be helpful if you could elaborate
on why you are considering a cutoff range in terms of c.f.u. as a basis to
establish a case of bacterial meningitis.  However, as the meningitis are a
sterile site, the isolation and or presence of bacteria alone is good
evidence to suggest meningitis of bacterial origin.
