Abstract


Benign recurrent Mollaret’s meningitis is a rare disease characterized by repeated episodes of aseptic meningitis with spontaneous recovery. The analysis of published cases of Mollaret’s meningitis indicates that the disease is predominantly found in adults. There are only isolated reports about the disease in children. This article presents a clinical case of Mollaret’s meningitis in a female patient who had 5 episodes of the disease since she was 3 years old.
