The conclusions from our studies to date may be summarized as follows. (1) Invasive E. coli strains causing neonatal meningitis are encapsulated. At least 80% of those strains inducing mengitis are K1 and approximately 40% of those strains isolated from infants with septicemia but without meningitis are also K1. Invasiveness is best related to the K1 antigen and not to E. coli O and H antigens. (2) The capsular content of CSF strains is not related to their invasiveness. In contrast to observations reporting higher K capsular polysaccharide content and molecular weight of E...

A 3 year old child with recurrent pneumococcal meningitis and a congenital cyst of the oval window is presented. An aqueous middle ear effusion was found and scintigraphy demonstrated a middle ear CSF leak. Surgical exploration revealed a cyst originating from the stapes footplate. The origin of this malformation is discussed and its possible presence in recurrent mengitis is stressed.
