[group b beta-hemolytic streptococcus: study on colonization of mother-neonate couples observed in january-may 1988 at the obstetrics and gynecology unit and the neonatal section at the pistoia hospital].in a previous study, carried out on women at delivery recovered at the obstetric ward of the pistoia hospital, we noted a high incidence of group b streptococci cultured from vaginal site. because group b streptococcal infection is very serious in neonates we decided to examine the frequence of vertical and horizontal transmission among the mother-neonate couples. we have also compared their rate of colonisation by doing rectal and vaginal swabs on women and rectal, vaginal and external auditory ...19883077473
[group b streptococci in women admitted to the obstetric and gynecologic division of the hospital of pistoia, for imminent parturition].the infections caused by group b streptococci (gbs) are particularly serious in newborns. colonized mothers are responsible for the infection's transmission at delivery. the aim of our work has been to estimate the number of carriers of gbs among women recovered at the hospital of pistoia.19853915822
[vaginal colonization of streptococcus b in pregnancy].in the last few years the importance of gbs as the cause of serious neonatal sepsis has become more evident. the number of cases of this infection clearly exceeds the number of other congenital infections, for which antenatal screening is performed. asymptomatic colonization of the genital tract of the pregnant woman has the most important role in transmission of gbs and several risk factors are connected to neonatal infection. in order to assess the epidemiological situation in tuscany, 5079 pr ...19968927282
