Part Description

LP16649-3   Haemophilus influenzae
Haemophilus influenza is a pleomorphic gram-negative coccobacillus. H influenzae is divided into six serotype (A-F) based on their capsular polysaccharides. The majority of haemophilus infections are caused by H influenza serotype B (HIB) which causes pneumonia, bacteremia, meningitis, epiglottitis, septic arthritis, cellulitis, otitis media, purulent pericarditis, endocarditis and osteomyelitis. Infections with the remaining serotypes lead to similar disease processes as HIB. Unencapsulated H influenzae that is not able to be typed (nontypable H influenzae) can cause ear infections in children and bronchitis in adults but also bacteremia and bacteremic pneumonia. Nontypable H influenza is the main cause of invasive H influenzae infections in all age groups. Transmission of H influenzae is by direct contact with respiratory aerosols. Neonates can become infected with H influenza by aspirating amniotic fluid or through contact with genital tract secretions.[https://www.cdc.gov/hi-disease/clinicians.html] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
