Abstract

SANZ ALVAREZ, Débora; BLAZQUEZ GAMERO, Daniel  and  RUIZ CONTRERAS, Jesús. Abdominal acute pain as initial symptom of invasive meningococcus serogrup A illness. Arch. argent. pediatr. [online]. 2011, vol.109, n.2, pp. 39-41. ISSN 0325-0075.

The abdominal acute pain as an initial symptom of meningococcemia is an infrequent entity rarely described in the literature. We present a 10 month-old infant with fever and acute abdominal pain, who was admitted in Emergency Care. Later, Neisseria meningitidis serogroup A was isolated from blood cultures.

Keywords : Abdominal pain; Infant; Neisseria meningitidis A.
