VELEZ BALESTRO, Liz M et al. Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus isolated from cerebrospinal fluid in a pediatric patient. Rev. argent. microbiol. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.4, pp.254-256. ISSN 1851-7617.

Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus is known to cause bacterial meningitis in adults, and most of the few pediatric cases observed occurred in neonates. We report the case of a 9-month old boy with a history of repeated hospitalizations due to respiratory diseases, who presented meningitis and bacteremia by Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasterianus. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case in Santa Fe to this date.

Keywords : Meningitis; Streptococcus gallolyticus subsp. pasteurianus; Streptococcus bovis.
