Successful Treatment of Neonatal Meningitis Caused by Chryseobacterium meningosepticum With Intravenous Ciprofloxacin and Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole

Collapse Box


A 5-day-old female infant developed meningitis due to Chryseobacterium meningosepticum. Although the isolate was resistant to empirical antibiotics such as penicillins, cephalosporins, and aminoglycosides, she was successfully treated with intravenous ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole without adverse reactions including arthropathy and jaundice. This result justifies the use of ciprofloxacin and trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole for neonatal meningitis caused by C. meningosepticum.
