Bacterial CNS are rare in COVID 19 patients. We describe a patient with severe pneumonia and meningitis that developed Froin’s syndrome by Staphylococcus aureus; this suggests that immune dysregulation in patients with COVID-19 facilitate disseminating commensal bacterial infections from the skin or the mucous membranes. Keywords: Meningitis, Froin’s syndrome, COVID-19.
