Haemophilus influenzae Type b 뇌막염으로 인한 신경학적 후유증 1례와 사지 말단의 결손을 초래한 조직괴사 1례
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.
Key Words: Haemophilus influenzae type b meningitis, Neurologic sequelae, Peripheral gangrene
