Meningitis is a dreaded disease entity with a clinical course and prognosis that is dependent on its etiology, which is an important source of concern in ensuring proper management. The frequently implicated etiologic agents are bacterial and less often viral; however, rare causes requiring a different management approach may also masquerade as these common causes as is seen in eosinophilic meningitis (EoM). Against this background, the case of a Nigerian male child with suspected helminth-induced EoM, management approach, and outcome is described.
