Pasteurella Multocida As A Rare Cause Of Neonatal Meningitis Complicated By Empyema
Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal
A neonatal male injured by the family dog developed meningitis secondary to Pasteurella multocida. After initially defervescing with IV antibiotic treatment, he became febrile again, and imaging revealed a skull fracture and fluid collection. Following neurosurgical evacuation and an extended course of antibiotics, the patient was discharged home.
