The incidence of invasive disease due to Streptococcus agalactiae (group B streptococcus [GBS]) in adults is on the rise; however, meningitis in adults due to GBS remains rare. We report 2 cases of GBS meningitis complicating elective abortion, 1 of which was a septic incomplete abortion. Only 1 case of bacterial meningitis complicating elective abortion has been reported previously.
