Globicatella sanguinis meningitis in a post head trauma patient: first case report from Asia
Globicatella sanguinis is a rare isolate in clinical samples. We present a case of meningitis in a 70-year-old male patient after a head injury operation. Three consecutive cerebrospinal fluid samples obtained from the patient identified Globicatella sanguinis based on morphology, biochemical profile, and Vitek-2 identification. The patient recovered after antibiotic treatment with vancomycin. This is the first case report of Globicatella sanguinis from Asia from a case of meningitis.
