Isolation of Haemophilus parahaemolyticus in a patient with cryptogenic brain abscess.

Abstract

Haemophilus parahaemolyticus rarely causes disease in humans. We present the case of a 68-y-old man who suffered from a brain abscess over the right-side thalamus and midbrain. Stereotactic aspirates grew H. parahaemolyticus. No portal of entry for the microorganism was identified in this case. The patient made a good recovery after treatment.
