Abstract

This report describes Streptococcus suis meningitis with ventriculitis in a 66-year-old kushiyaki chef, which presented with fever and meningeal irritation signs. Cerebrospinal fluid testing revealed increased cell counts and protein levels, and presence of gram-positive cocci. Kushiyaki chefs are at high risk of this infection and prophylaxis should be considered.
