Group A streptococcal meningitis.

Abstract

A retrospective record study of six cases of meningitis caused by group A beta-hemolytic Streptococcus is presented. Associated findings included otitis media, pharyngitis, and erysipelas. All patients survived their infections despite major complications including seizures, shock, coma, renal failure, and hepatitis. Two patients had neurologic sequelae. Group A Streptococcus causes a severe form of bacterial meningitis in apparently healthy children.
