Abstract: Cladosporium bantianum meningitis has been reported mostly in adult farmers between 20 and 30 years of age. We report a 6-day-old male neonate who was admitted with fever, focal seizures and not accepting feeds. Initial investigations suggested a diagnosis of pyogenic meningitis but antibiotic therapy for 14 days did not result in any significant clinical improvement. Repeat CSF examination after 14 days suggested a diagnosis of C. bantianum meningitis which was supported by presence of multiple abscesses in the cerebral cortex on CT scan of the head and confirmed by CSF culture. Clinical response to antifungal therapy remained unsatisfactory.
