We report a preterm infant diagnosed with a late-onset Pseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis and necrotizing meningoencephalitis who died at the age of 12 days as a consequence of multiple organ failure. In this case report we show the importance of the application of different advanced MRI modalities. On the basis of the MRI findings, clinical presentation, and laboratory data, the diagnosis of a necrotizing encephalopathy secondary to Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection was established.
