Background

Neonates are at greater risk for sepsis and meningitis than other ages. Early Neonatal meningitis due to Streptococcusgroup B is serious but uncommon disease.

 

The prevalence of neonatal meningitis is estimated 0.15-0.5per 1000 birth in industrialized countries and mortality from neonatal meningitis ranges from 10-15%, Increasing intrapartum antibiotic prophylaxis(IAP)coverage was linearly associated with decreased risk of Early-onset group B streptococcal disease (EOGBS) disease BY 85-90%.
