Igiene Moderna 82(4): 515-526
Epidemiological aspects of neonatal infections with streptococcus group b in trieste italy
A retrospective analysis of the neonatal group B streptococcal infection and colonization in newborns admitted to an intensive care unit was carried out. In 1977-1982, 6 cases of colonization and 10 cases of infection were discovered. Sporadic cases in 1977-1979 raised in the next period, when the morbidity and mortality rates where 1.85 and 0.61/1000 live births, respectively; the case fatality ratio was 30% and the infection was significantly related to a low birth weight. Some epidemiological and prophylactic aspects of the group B streptococcal disease are discussed.
