Abstract

Abstract: Streptococcus pneumoniae has been implicated as a cause of concomitant enteritis in children with otitis media, sinusitis, pneumonia, and meningitis. However, isolated pneumococcal enteritis has rarely been reported. We report a patient who presented with bloody diarrhea due to S pneumoniae serotype 17F without evidence of infection elsewhere.
