Salmonella meningitis is rarely seen in neonates and if it is present, it is associated with complications like subdural collections and abscesses. We are presenting a case of Salmonella meningitis in a 28 days old neonate who developed complications like extensive subdural collections and ventriculitis. The child responded well to prolonged systemic antibiotics and other supportive measures.
