We describe a patient with postsurgical anaerobic meningitis due to Peptostreptococcus magnus. In cases of meningitis associated with Peptostreptococcus species reported in the literature, the most common predisposing factors are meningorectal fistulae and head-and-neck surgery. Most patients respond well to appropriate antimicrobial therapy. Surgical intervention may be required in some instances.
