Abstract

Moraxella is an aerobic, Gram-negative coccobacillus, which is rarely associated with serious and invasive infections. Because of its rarity, the clinical significance and appropriate therapy for infections due to Moraxella are not well understood. We report a case of meningoencephalitis caused by Moraxella. The patient presented with fever and confusion and was successfully treated with beta-lactam and aminoglycoside antibiotics. We also review 8 previously published cases of Moraxella meningitis or meningoencephalitis.
