Abstract
We report on a newborn girl with a Aeromonas caviae shunt infection and meningitis after insertion of a ventriculoperitoneal shunt and surgical repair of a meningomyelocele in one procedure. This pathogen has never been reported, related to ventriculoperitoneal shunt infections. Beside the need for surgical revision of the shunt because of shunt obstruction and septa formation in the ventricles, the clinical outcome was good with intravenous cefotaxime therapy.
