Arch Intern Med. 1983;143(5):1049-1050. doi:10.1001/archinte.1983.00350050215043

• An elderly woman had an abrupt onset of symptoms consistent with bacterial meningitis without an obvious source of infection. The organism, isolated from the blood and CSF, was a nonserotypeable Hemophilus influenzae, biotype III. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of meningitis caused by this organism.
