Gemella haemolysans is an uncommon but described cause of invasive disease in humans. We report a case of meningitis due to G. haemolysans that did not grow in cerebrospinal fluid culture, demonstrating a potential role for direct 16S rRNA gene PCR and sequencing in culture-negative cerebrospinal fluid when bacterial meningitis is suspected.
