Abstract: Campylobacter jejuni is a common cause of gastroenteritis especially in childhood. However, extraintestinal manifestations of C. jejuni such as bacteremia, cholecystitis, pancreatitis and osteomyelitis are rare. Meningitis in newborns caused by this organism is unusually rare. We report a case of neonatal meningitis in a 15-day old term boy caused by Campylobacter jejuni.
