Abstract

In spite of the appropriate antibiotic treatment and the development of newer antibiotics, bacterial meningitis still has a high risk of complications. Especially, vascular involvements of meningitis, including vasospasms and infarctions, frequently result in neurologic sequelae. Here, we report a case of bacterial meningitis complicated by arterial vasospasms and multiple infarctions during a clinically improving course. This case suggests that in the management of bacterial meningitis, early evaluation and monitoring of vasculitis by TCD and its management could prevent fatal outcomes.
