Meningitis due to group A Streptococcus is uncommon. Only a few cases have been reported in the literature. In this paper, we report a case of a 19-year-old man who presented with fever, headache, nausea, vomiting and a decrease in level of consciousness. Five days prior to admission, he had an episode of acute pharyngitis. Group A Streptococcus was isolated from both the cerebrospinal fluid and blood. He recovered without sequelae after therapy with penicillin G for 2 weeks. Physicians should be aware that group A streptococcal infection may cause meningitis.
