AbstractPrimary amoebic meningoencephalitis due to Naegleria fowleri was found in a 38-year-old Chinese man living in Hong Kong who presumably acquired the infection from swimming in a hot spring in neighbouring China. Amoebic cysts were identified in tissue taken from a brain abscess. The patient responded to surgical drainage and a 6-week course of amphotericin B, rifampicin and chloramphenicol. This is one of 6 cases of successful treatment of primary amoebic meningoencephalitis documented in the medical literature. © 1993.
