Acute bacterial meningitis due to Neiserria is uncommonly encountered in children. The reported mortality in invasive meningococcal meningitis is between 10- 15% with a disability rate of 11-19%. Reported cases are due to sero type A and rare reports of sero group B. Meningococcal disease is known to present with a stormy onset and rapid progression with mortality in children. We report two children with Neiserria meningitis due to the uncommon W 135 strain from Chennai, and they presented with relatively mild illness and recovered completely without any sequelae.
