A male adolescent with a history of pharyngitis developed meningitis due to Kingella kingae. This is a Gram-negative coccobacillus belonging to the family of Neisseriaceae. It is a rarely reported human pathogen, from which only 2 cases of meningitis have been described up to the present day. Our patient developed ophthalmoplegia, suggestive of basal meningitis. He was treated with penicillin G and recovered completely.
