Some case reports suggest that protein C zymogen supplementation may improve the outcome of patients with congenital or acquired protein C deficiency, such as sepsis-induced purpura fulminans. We describe the case report of a patient suffering from meningitis who developed a bleeding complication after recombinant human activated protein C administration and was successfully treated without any further bleeding complication with protein C concentrate. Protein C concentrate can be considered in adult patients with meningitis, even if at risk or in the presence of bleeding.
