Abstract :

Recurrent bacterial meningitis in pediatrics is a challenging diagnosis with a limited number of researches about it. Structural approach and early diagnosis of an underlying pathology are crucial to prevent further episodes and improve the overall outcome. 1.3% of children with bacterial meningitis had experienced at lease one previous episode of bacterial meningitis previously. Anatomic abnormalities are the most common predisposing factor of RBM. Congenital ear malformation is the leading cause. Immunodeficienies are of much less importance with terminal complements deficiency as the main cause. Histroy of head trauma is important but should not exclude other possibilities. The aim of this presentation is to present a rare case of RBM and put an approach plan for children with such presentation.
