Copyright © 1995 by The Korean Pediatric Society
Haemophilus influenzae type b(Hib) is one of the most common organisms causing bacterial meningitis in children aged between 2 months and 6 years. Since introduction of Hib vaccination, the mortality from Hib meningitis has fallen, but major neurologic sequelae, ie, mental retardation, seizure, blindness, and persistent motor deficits, are serious problems. Cerebral infarction was rarely complicated during the course of meninigitis associated with Hib infection and peripheral gangrene associated with Hib meningitis has not been reported until now. We have experienced a case of neurologic sequelae with cerebral infarction in 6 month old infant, and also a case of peripheral gangrene in 3 month old infant associated with Hib meningitis. A brief review of related literatures in included in this Report.
