Citrobacter koseri (CK) is a facultative anaerobe that causes an uncommon, yet potentially neurologically devastating, form of neonatal meningitis/cerebritis. On imaging it often forms a characteristic polygonal-shaped abscess. A high degree of suspicion is necessary to make the diagnosis. One such case of a neonate is presented, illustrating the key imaging features and importance of serial neuroimaging.
