Neonatal Haemophilus influenzae infection. Report of eight cases and review of the literature



Neonatal Haemophilus influenzae infection. Report of eight cases and review of the literature



American Journal of Diseases of Children 129(1): 57-62



Eight cases of neonatal Haemophilus influenzae infection occurred at Colorado General Hospital during a 3 1/2-year period. Four of the cases were due to nontypable organisms and four to type b organisms. Four were bacteremic, only two of which were type b. None of the patients had meningitis. In all instances, maternal genital tract cultures yielded H infleuzae that, when tested, was of the same serotype as the infant isolate. A survey of cervical cultures among normal and pregnant women yielded H influenzae in less than 1%. There are several possible reasons for the disparity between the apparent high incidence of neonatal infection and low prevalence of maternal carriage.
