Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in the Elderly

Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae in the Elderly Abstract Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae pneumonia occurred in 12 patients older than 60 years in a 15-month period. These patients represented approximately 11% of the 104 elderly patients with bacterial pneumonia in whom transtracheal aspiration was performed. Eighty-five percent of H influenzae isolates (12/14) recovered from elderly patients with pneumonia were nontypeable. Nontypeable H influenzae pneumonia occurred in the community, in nursing homes, and in the hospital. Patterns of both bilateral patchy bronchopneumonia and dense lobar consolidation were seen on chest roentgenograms. (Arch Intern Med 1982;142:537-539) References 1.

Abstract

Abstract Nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae pneumonia occurred in 12 patients older than 60 years in a 15-month period. These patients represented approximately 11% of the 104 elderly patients with bacterial pneumonia in whom transtracheal aspiration was performed. Eighty-five percent of H influenzae isolates (12/14) recovered from elderly patients with pneumonia were nontypeable. Nontypeable H influenzae pneumonia occurred in the community, in nursing homes, and in the hospital. Patterns of both bilateral patchy bronchopneumonia and dense lobar consolidation were seen on chest roentgenograms. (Arch Intern Med 1982;142:537-539) References 1.
