Abstract

Cranial nerve palsies are uncommon in nontuberculous bacterial meningitis. We report a patient with Streptococcus pneumoniae meningitis, multiple cranial nerve involvement, and cerebellar signs suggestive of basilar meningitis. Nontuberculous bacterial meningitis should be considered in the differential diagnosis of basilar meningitis.
