Özet

Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most common cause of complicated pneumonia. Pneumococcal necrotizing pneumonia (PNP) is a rare and serotype related complication. Serotypes 1, 3, 14, 15, 19A and 33 were the most reported serotypes in children with PNP before immunization. Despite widespread vaccination, S. pneumoniae is still cause of invasive diseases. We reported a child, fully immunized with 13-valent conjugated pneumococcal vaccine (PCV13) who was diagnosed PNP due to serotype 3. Breakthrough invasive infection caused by S. pneumoniae must be considered in mind despite fully vaccination.
