Barton MS, Spencer H, Johnson DP, Crook TW, Frost PA, Castillo-Galvan R, Creech CB. Group B Streptococcus Meningitis in an Infant with Respiratory Syncytial Virus Detection. The Journal of pediatrics. 2020 Jun 4. PMID: 32505478 [PubMed]
We cared for an infant with respiratory syncytial virus infection (RSV) and group B Streptococcus (GBS) bacteremia and meningitis. Concurrent GBS meningitis and RSV is rare but highlights the importance of correlating clinical symptoms with viral diagnostic testing during the evaluation of infants at risk for serious bacterial infection.
