A 50-year-old policeman who presented with subacute meningitis, bilateral rectus muscle palsies, dizziness and early bilateral deafness was reported. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) revealed polymorphonuclear pleocytosis with Gram-positive cocci. Blood and CSF cultures grew Streptococcus viridans which subsequently identified to be Streptococcus suis. The patient improved after treatment but deafness persisted.
