Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Group C beta-hemolytic Streptococcus, though an uncommon cause of meningitis in adults, often leads to the demise of the patient or a prolonged hospital course, usually with residual neurologic impairment. We report a case of group C streptococcal meningitis in a previously healthy young adult, with rapid and complete recovery following early initiation of IV penicillin therapy.
