Abstract

The incidence of vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) meningitis is increasing. We present a 56-year-old man who suffered from VRE meningitis after cerebellar hemorrhage and intraventricular catheter insertion. The patient recovered completely after treatment with linezolid for 6 weeks. This is the first report on effectiveness of linezolid in treating VRE meningitis in Korea.
