Abstract
Despite the advent of new antimicrobial drugs and mordern imaging techniques, mortality and morbidity of bacterial meningitis remain high. The unfavorable clinical outcomes are due to intracranial complications such as cerebrovascular complications, hydrocephalus, cerebral edema, intracerebral hemorrhage, brain abscess, and convulsion. Prompt identification and treatment of each are essential to mininize unfavorable outcomes. We report two cases of cerebral infarctions complicated by Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis with a brief review of related literatures.
Key Words: Pneumococcal meningitis, Thrombosis
