Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Balamuthia amebic encephalitis is rarely reported in infants. To the best of our knowledge, amebic encephalitis complicated by a mycotic aneurysm was only described once. We report on an 8-month-child with laboratory-confirmed Balamuthia mandrillaris meningoencephalitis, complicated by a mycotic aneurysm of the middle cerebral artery.
