Group B streptococci or STREPTOCOCCUS AGALACTIA colonize the nasopharynx, digestive tract and vagina. Serovar bacteria are also trophic to the central nervous system and respiratory tract tissue. Besides, they most often cause meningitis with neonates.


Contamination occurs when the fetus advances through the generative passage infected by streptococci. Streptococcal pneumonia develops with respiratory viral infections in the background, ‘pure’ bacterial lesions rarely arise, but as a complication of the acute respiratory viral disease, pneumonia is quite common.

Extensive contamination with respiratory viruses makes the pulmonary tissue more sensitive to bacterial superinfections as soon as a few hours after the permeation of the primary infection agent. Medics found the lesions caused by group B streptococci in all age groups, but neonate pathology is predominant.


Thirty per cent of children display early manifestations. Moreover, the diseases with neonates take a grave course, and the death rate reaches thirty-seven per cent.

Ten to twelve per cents of children who display tardy manifestations of meningitis usually die. And, fifty per cent of survivors have residual lesions. Group B streptococci or STREPTOCOCCUS AGALACTIA cause postpartum infections in women in labour. We know those as endometritis, urinary tract disorders, operative wound complications after cesarean section.


Medics have noticed that the microorganisms are apt to cause lesions of cutaneous integument and fleshy tissue and meningitis in adults. Older people who suffer from diabetes mellitus, peripheral vessel disorders, liver diseases and malignant new growths are particularly vulnerable.
