Abstract: A 3-week-old male neonate presented with fever, pallor, and irritability secondary to Pasteurella multocida meningitis. Exposure within the household to a pet cat and dog occurred; there is no definitive evidence of transmission of infection. We conclude that through indirect contamination, the patient was colonized with Pasteurella multocida followed by systemic infection.
