AbstractWe report a case of neonatal subdural empyema caused by Mycoplasma hominis. The infant sustained severe birth-related eye injury and subsequently developed multiple sub-dural empyemata. This report illustrates the clinical presentation of this unusual infection and the crucial role of neurosurgical intervention and specific antimicrobial therapy for its successful management.
