Abstract
Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common pathogen of bacterial meningitis in childhood. It causes such intracranial complications as hydrocephalus, cerebral edema, inappropriate secretion of antidiuretic hormone(SIADH), and convulsion, and also such cerebral vascular complications as vasculitis, thrombosis, aneurysm, infarction, and subarachnoid hemorrhage. We report a male of 4 months old who had intracerebral cortical hemorrhage and sinovenous thrombosis complicated by streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis. Also, we reviewed the literature on intracerebral vascular complications related to bacterial meningitis.
Key Words: Streptococcus pneumoniae, Meningitis, Thrombosis
