Abstract

We report three newborns with brain abscesses. Two infants suffered from Serratia marcescens meningitis and one infant had enterococcal sepsis and meningitis. Brain abscesses were detected by cerebral sonography. Outcome in one infant with S. marcescens infection was poor. This patient developed multicystic encephalo-malacia and severe developmental retardation. In the other patient with S. marcescens infection surgical drainage of the abscess was performed. The outcome was good both in this infant and in the patient with enterococcal brain abscess
