A Case Statement of Meningococcal Infection in a Neonate

Gjovalin Valca, Enkelejda Shkurti

Early beginning and tardy onset types of meningococcal sepsis in neonates have been described while neonatal meningococcal meningitis (NMM) is atypical. The result of meningococcal illness can be critical and depends on the native immune system, age, serogroups, pre-existing antibodies, and other unidentified host issues. The presentation of NMM varies from that in kids and youngsters and may be characterized with fever, poor nourishment, diminished activity, spasms, distorted perception and respiratory suffering. Punctual detection and commencement of antibiotics is decisive to survival. In the literature, very a small number of cases of neonatal meningococcal disease have been described in the United States. The regular annual occurrence of meningococcal meningitis in neonates is very small in contrast with the incidence of group B streptococcal meningitis. We represent the little acknowledged case of neonatal meningococcal meningitis in Albania. In addition, we present a review of the accessible literature.
