We present a case of premature twins, born at 24 weeks of gestation. Both infants died of intraventricular hemorrhage, aged 1 and 3 days, respectively. Ureaplasma urealyticum was isolated from brain tissue obtained at the autopsy of both infants. Our observations lend additional evidence of the role of U. urealyticum as a central nervous system pathogen in premature infants.
