Abstract

Streptococcus agalactiae is common bacterial colonizer and pathogen of humans and an important agent of neonatal sepsis, reputed to cause o.a. 2 deaths per thousand live births. It is highly invasive organism and only 10-100 cells of some strains injected intraperitoneally in mice will cause death with 10 hours. Upon post-mortem, the organisms can be recovered from most of the major organ, perticularly the spleen.
