The authors describe five clinical cases concerning meningitis due to Haemophilus influenzae type b recorded in our hospital from June 1991 to April 1993. We studied the therapeutical association between ceftriaxone and dexamethasone, and we analysed, according to the newest data in the literature, its physiopathological and clinical assumptions which would advice its usual use against the meningitis caused by Haemophilus influenzae type b.
