Fact of the day: Citrobacter causes brain abscesses in neonates

Citrobacter species are Gram-negative enteric bacilli found in the intestinal tract of humans and animals, and are also present in soil and water.

C koseri is a very rare cause of neonatal meningitis and infection is frequently associated with cerebral abscesses (75%).

The reason why Citrobacter particularly affects neonates is not known, nor why it preferentially involves the central nervous system (CNS).
