Etiology of acute bacterial meningitis in hospitalized children in western Uttar Pradesh.

Abstract

We retrospectively studied clinical and etiological profile of acute bacterial meningitis in hospitalized children for two consecutive years at a pediatric hospital in western Uttar Pradesh. Etiological diagnosis could be made in 30 (44.8%) out of 67 cases with either culture or latex agglutination test. Pneumococcus was the commonest pathogen found in 17 (25.4%) cases. The overall mortality was 10.5%.
