Long-Term Outcomes Following Infant Group B Streptococcal Sepsis and Meningitis in Hong Kong
Publication in refereed journal


Other information
AbstractOur single hospital report on 8 infants with development delays from 71 neonatal Group B Streptococci (GBS) meningitis/sepsis cases during 2007-2017 in Hong Kong draws attention to the limited information on long-term sequelae after early-life GBS infection in Asia. Two meningitis survivors showed more extreme condition, such as epilepsy. Strategies to reduce such burden in infants remains to be sought.
