A case of Streptococcus suis meningitis is observed in a 39-year-old and previously healthy meat factory worker. Neurological recovery was incomplete despite adequate and sustained antimicrobial therapy. Early deafness was demonstrated by brainstem auditory evoked potentials. Death due to aspiration pneumonia, cardiac arrest and subsequent cerebral anoxia occurred late in the course of the illness.
