Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present briefly 2 newborns with Pasteurella multocida meningitis following incidental household exposure to domestic pets and review 36 additional cases from the literature. Of 38 reported cases of P. multocida meningitis during infancy, 18 were less than or equal to 1 month of age. All but one of the infants less than 1 month of age had documented exposure to household dogs and/or cats, most only incidentally.
