Abstract:   (6162 Views)
Campylobacteriosis is a zoonosis that occurs worldwide. Among 17 species in the genus of campylobacter, campylobacter fetus has special characteristics. In contrast to other species, which frequently cause diarrhea, C.fetus is primarily associated with extra intestinal infections such as septic abortion, septic arthritis, abscesses, meningitis, endocarditis, thrombophlebitis and salpingitis. Meninigitis in adults due to campylobacter fetus is a rare entity and only nine cases of it have been reported in the literature since 1983-2002. This is a case report of a 60-year-old woman who was hospitalized in Kasra Hospital due to having C.fetus.meningitis.
