Abstract

In a 20-year old patient there were 5 relapses of meningococcus meningitis during a period of 14 years following the first illness. The development of the last relapse was atypical. A congenital cranio-nasal fistula and liquorrhea was found, inflammatory changes in the lumbar and nasal, an expressed cystic-adhesive membrane process during pneumoencephalography. Frequent relapses are connected with a congenital cranio-nasal fistula and a formation of the focus of infection in the membranes of the cerebral base.
