Abstract
Citrobacter freundii have been reported infrequently as a cause of meningitis. And, among bacteria that cause meningitis, Citrobacter is unique in its propensity to produced brain abscess. But the pathogenesis of Citrobacter meningitis and brain abscess in humans is unknown. The high prevalance of brain abscess in infants with Citrobacter meningitis mandates cranial computed tomography in every case. The morbidity and mortality rates associated with Citrobacter meningitis are high, and at least three quarters of surviving infants are delayed in development. Long-term neurodevelopment follow- up is indicated for all infants with Citrobacter meningitis. We experienced a case of C. freundii meningitis in a 22 days old female neonate. A brief review of related literature was made.
Key Words: Citrobacter freundii meningitis
