Meningitis is an uncommon complications of head trauma. Vasculitis in bacterial meningitis is seen in 9%–25% of adults. Neurological deficits in bacterial meningitis are seen in about one-third of children. Isolated cranial nerve palsies are common, whereas major deficits such as hemiparesis and quadriparesis are rare. We describe a case of a 7-year-old boy who had post-traumatic meningitis complicated with quadriparesis and severe vasculitis of bilateral anterior and posterior circulation with moyamoya vasculopathy.
