Cardiology in the Young

Abstract

Purulent bacterial pericarditis is an uncommon infection that manifests during childhood, and in the post-antibiotic era Streptococcus pneumoniae is an unusual cause.We report a case of purulent bacterial pericarditis in a neonate caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae serotype 7F. Although cases of bacterial pericarditis caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae as a causative agent have been reported, their combination in a neonate is unique and this is, to our knowledge, the first case of this combination in the newborn period.
