Three cases of meningitis caused by the fastidious Gram-negative rod Capnocytophaga canimorsus have been observed at a regional hospital in 1 y. The difficulties connected with the correct diagnosis by classical culturing methods in contrast to molecular methods, as well as possible reasons for the accumulation of cases, are discussed.
