Streptococcus (Group B Neonatal) - Statistics and Incidence Rate

Group B streptococcal infection is a bacterial disease that can infect infants from birth to one-week (early-onset) or from one-week to three months of age (late-onset). Early-onset infection occurs when the infant is infected by the mother (usually during birth). Late-onset infection can be from the mother but usually it is unknown where the infection came from.

Group B streptococcus can cause a blood infection, lung infection, or infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and its lining.
