Haemophilus Influenzae

Common Name(s)

Haemophilus Influenzae

Haemophilus Influenzae is an infectious bacterium that can cause problems for many systems of the body. There are six types (a-f) of the bacterium that can cause serious infections in infants and children under the age of five. The bacteria are passed from person to person through direct contact or respiratory droplets from coughing or sneezing. Haemophilus influenzae are most dangerous when they have infected the bloodstream (bacteremia), lungs (pneumonia), or brain (meningitis). Each of these infections correlates to a different set of symptoms. Haemophilus influenzae infections can be treated with antibiotics. In some severe cases, hospitalization may occur as well.
