Abstract

In this study, we report the case of a 2.5-day-old neonate with septicemia and meningitis due to Plesiomonas shigelloides. Culture of the cerebrospinal fluid showed Gram-negative rods, although the glucose, protein and leukocyte counts were normal. The patient was treated with meropenem and survived without any sequelae, although we were not able to identify the source of the infection. In addition, ten previously reported cases of this infection are reviewed.
