Hemophilus influenzae Bursitis and Meningitis in an Adult

Hemophilus influenzae Bursitis and Meningitis in an Adult Abstract • Septic bursitis caused by Hemophilus influenzae, to our knowledge, has not been described previously. We treated a patient who had bursitis and meningitis caused by a nontype B Hemophilus influenzae. The clinical features of septic bursitis are briefly discussed and the importance of bursal aspiration and culture is emphasized. (Arch Intern Med 1983;143:1465-1466) References 1.
