OBJECTIVE To describe the epidemiology of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD) caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 19A. METHODS We studied all children and adolescents with IPD caused by serotype 19A who were admitted to a Children's Hospital in Barcelona (1997-2007). Serotyping, antibiotic susceptibility and clonal analysis were performed. RESULTS Comparing the pre-vaccine period (1997-2001) with the early vaccine period (2002-2004) and the late vaccine period (2005-2007) there was… CONTINUE READING
