This report presents a case of brain abscess due to Haemophilus aphrophilus in a six-year old boy. He was admitted to our hospital suffering from left-sided weakness. The initial radiological diagnosis was an intracranial abscess. Purulent material was obtained by puncturing the subcortical lesion and the sample was cultured on conventional media. H. aphrophilus was isolated in pure culture, identified according to conventional methods and confirmed by Becton Dickinson Laboratory (BBL) crystal system. After surgical drainage and eight weeks of antibiotic therapy, the neurological findings improved. The presented case is an example of H. aphriphilus causing brain abscess in the first decade without cardiac predisposition and with good outcome.
