Abstract: 

Background: We report a man with septic olecranon bursitis who had an early development of meningitis.
Case Summary: A 74-year-old man presented to the emergency room with malaise, headache, mental confusion, a fever unsuccessfully treated with oral NSAIDs and ice, and with a 10-day history of pain and swelling in his right elbow. Clinical and laboratory evaluation excluded other causes and microbiological evaluation documented a S. agalactiae infection. Antibiotic treatment induced a rapid improvement, without the development of side effects.
Conclusion: This is the first report on olecranon bursitis and concomitant meningitis related to S. agalactiae infection.
