Abstract

Invasive infections by Corynebacterium minutissimum are rarely documented. The significance of laboratory isolation of this bacterium from a sterile specimen such as cerebrospinal fluid is difficult to determine as it usually colonizes the skin. However, repeated isolation in a clinical setting should be treated appropriately. Here we report a first case of infected pseudomeningocele by C. minutissimum in an adult woman operated on for falcotentorial psammomatous meningioma. The patient was treated successfully with linezolid.
