Article abstract

We report a 45-year-old man with fulminant pneumococcal meningitis. Fluid attenuated inverse ratio MR images showed the ravaging consequences of occlusive vasculopathy and a transient purulent basal exudate. Bilateral thalamic lesions may have explained the failure to awaken despite appropriate antibiotic therapy.
