Free Content Extensive Cerebral Necrosis Secondary to Cronobacter sakazakii Meningoencephalitis

The Cronobacter species are notable for their tendency to infect the central nervous system and their propensity for necrotizing infections. We reported imaging findings from a case of C. sakazakii meningitis in a preterm infant that resulted in near-complete necrosis of the cerebral hemispheres.
