Abstract

Haemophilus aphrophilus infection is rare. We report the case of a 47-year-old patient with headache. Magnetic resonance imaging revealed a lesion in the left temporal white matter. Stereotactic drainage was performed and Haemophilus aphrophilus was isolated. The patient recovered completely after antibiotherapy.
