 en Cerebritis: An unusual complication of Klebsiella pneumoniae check for this species in other resources
Majumdar, Mainak; Simes, David C & Prabha, Ramesh D


Cerebritis is part of a continuum of brain infection and is difficult to diagnose. Cerebritis caused by Klebsiella check for this species in other resources in immunocompetent adults without predisposing factors such as neurosurgery or penetrating brain injury has not been reported before. We report a case of Klebsiella cerebritis in an adult patient with a proven extracranial focus of infection. We suggest considering cerebritis as a differential diagnosis for altered level of consciousness in patients of severe sepsis, even if an extracranial source of infection is proven.
