Arterial occlusion due to Listeria meningoencephalitis in an immunocompromised boy

Békássy, Albert LU ; Cronqvist, Sten; Garwicz, Stanislaw LU and Wiebe, Thomas LU (1987) In Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases 19(4). p.485-489
Abstract
Sequential CAT scan studies of the brain were performed in a 7-year-old boy with Listeria monocytogenes serotype 1 meningoencephalitis. The infection occurred while he was receiving maintenance chemotherapy for T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma. A lesion in the right hemisphere during the infection resulted in an excessive enlargement of the right ventricle 10 months later, most probably caused by arterial occlusion.
