Abstract

Invasive infections due to Haemophilus influenzae non-type b have been reported to be on the increase with the decline in invasive H.influenzae type b infections after the introduction of the conjugate H.influenzae type b vaccine. We report a case of H. influenzae type f sepsis in a fully immunized, immunocompetent, and previously healthy 9-month-old child.
