Bacterial bloodstream infections (BSI) account for considerable morbidity worldwide, but epidemiological data from resource-constrained tropical settings are scarce. We analysed 293 blood cultures from patients presenting to a regional referral hospital in Bouaké, central Côte d'Ivoire, to determine the aetiology of community-onset BSI. The prevalence of(More)
To determine the frequency of pneumococci meningitis with reduced sensitivity to penicillin G isolated from cerebrospinal fluid, 539 strains were studied between 1996 to 2000. All strains were analysed with oxacilline containing 5 mcg / standard antibiogram for determination of minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) for penicillin G by E-test. Our results(More)
The purpose of this study was to improve prevention of nosocomial infection due to Staphylococcus aureus in patients treated at the Cocody Hemodialysis Center in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire. Samples were collected from 56 dialysis patients and 8 staff members. Findings showed that there were 36 transient carriers (64.3%) and 12 permanent carriers (21.4%) in the(More)
Infectious meningitis accounts for enormous morbidity worldwide, but there is a paucity of data on its regional epidemiology in resource-constrained settings of sub-Saharan Africa. Here, we present a study on the aetiology of paediatric meningitis in central Côte d'Ivoire. Between June 2012 and December 2013, all cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples drawn at(More)
The object of our study was to contribute to the knowledge of the epidemiology and bacteriology of Haemophilus influenzae so as to ensure better treatment of patients consulting the Treichville Teaching Hospital. In the bacteriology laboratory of that hospital, between January 1996 and December 1999, we diagnosed by culture and/or soluble antigen, 203 cases(More)
