Although less common than influenza A, influenza B infections can cause significant mortality and morbidity in children who are immunocomprised and have underlying medical conditions. We report a preterm neonate with fatal influenza B virus pneumonia. This infant presented with signs and symptoms indistinguishable from any other cause of sepsis.
