Resumen

DIAZ ALVAREZ, Manuel  y  CLAVER ASIS, Daniel. Neonatal meningitis caused by Streptococcus pyogenes and literature review of the last 50 years. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 2008, vol.80, n.2. ISSN 0034-7531.

The case of a newborn infant who died of bacterial meningitis caused by streptococcus of the group A was described. The literature was reviewed by searching different databases and other sources of the last 50 years. Before publishing this case, cases of other 20 neonates with bacterial meningitis due to streptococcus of the group A have been documented and their clinical description has been made since 1957. Other articles show the casuistics of sepsis or neonatal meningitis in general by reporting cases of newborns with this infection produced by streptococcus of group A, but no detailed information of the cases is provided. According to the publications cited, it was proved that in spite of the fact that at present streptococcus is not a hazard in the neonatal period, it may be considered among the microorganisms causing neonatal bacterial meningitis.

Palabras clave : Streptococcus pyogenes; meningitis; newborn infants.
