Two Cases of Cronobacter Sakazakii Meningitis in Infants: The Importance Of Early Advanced Brain Imaging and Public Health Reporting

Academic Article


  • We report 2 infants hospitalized with Cronobacter sakazakii meningitis. Each infant had exposure to powdered infant formula at home. Both infants survived, but 1 infant had a subdural empyema drained and developed left sensorineural hearing loss. Early advanced brain imaging is recommended in infants with C. sakazakii meningitis. Reporting to state and federal public health officials may help identify outbreaks.
