Abstract

Haemophilus influenzae type b (Hib) causes a serious bacterial infection in young children, most commonly meningitis (infection of the coverings of the spinal cord and brain). Some persons who recover from Hib meningitis may have long-lasting brain and nerve problems. Hib can also cause blood infections, pneumonia, arthritis, and infections in other parts of the body. In some instances, Hib disease may cause death.
