Abstract

Forty two pneumococcal strains obtained in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, from 42 patients with invasive diseases, namely pneumonia, meningitis, or peritonitis were typed. Over one-third of pneumococci in children and nearly half in adults were serotype followed by serogroups/types 5, 6 and 7 which were most common in children and adults taken together. These 4 serogroups/types accounted for 11 (79%) of 14 strains in children and 20 (71%) of 28 strains in adults. The remaining 11 strains belonged to 8 serogroups/types, namely 3, 4, 10, 11, 12, 13, 19 and 20.
