Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) causes pneumonia, occult febrile bacteremia, meningitis, epiglottitis, septic arthritis, cellulitis, otitis media, purulent pericarditis, and other less common infections, such as endocarditis, endophthalmitis, osteomyelitis, and peritonitis. Nontype b encapsulated strains occasionally cause invasive disease similar to type b infections. Nontypable strains more commonly cause infections of the respiratory tract (eg, conjunctivitis, otitis media, sinusitis, pneumonia) and, less often, bacteremia, meningitis, chorioamnionitis, and neonatal septicemia.
Haemophilus influenzae Infections has been found in Red Book 28e
