This report describes the clinical course and pathological findings in a four-year-old male cynomolgus monkey (Macaca fascicularis) which succumbed to fulminant pneumococcal meningitis. The extremely rapid course of this infection emphasizes the importance of early recognition of the clinical manifestations of meningitis in the correct diagnosis and rapid treatment of the condition.
