Abstract

We describe 3 children with urinary tract abnormalities and large numbers of Streptococcus pneumoniae in their urine, along with a brief review of previously reported cases. These findings strongly suggest that S. pneumoniae is a uropathogen, especially in children with urinary tract abnormalities.
