This paper presented a case of multiple brain abscesses complicated with meningitis, found in a 7 days old newborn boy. This baby was admitted with the chief complaints of poor sucking and irritability. Diagnosis of purulent meningitis was made through CSF study. High fever and abnormal CSF(pleccytcsis and gradually increasing protein level) has been persisted inspite of broad spectrum heavy antibiotic therapy. Simple skull X-ray showed no abnormal findings and multiple brain abscess was confirmed by brain computerized tomography. Trephination with repeated aspiration was performed, resulting in complete recovery without any complications.
Key Words: Purulent meningitis, multiple brain abscess, newborn.
