The serotypes and the levels of antibiotic resistance of 59 Streptococcus agalactiae isolates from neonates in Casablanca, from February 1992 to July 1997, were studied. Most of the isolates (86.4%) were recovered from early-onset disease. The serotype distribution was as follows: serotype III 39%; serotype Ia 32.2%; and serotype V 10.2%.
