The leptomeninges are arachnoid and pia mater together.The morphology of the brain in meningococcal meningitis is said[by whom?] to be covered byexudate on the surface of and within the leptomeninges. Because the arachnoid is connected to the pia by cob-web like strands, it is structurally continuous with the pia, hence the name pia-arachnoid or leptomeninges. They are responsible for the production of beta-trace.
