KEGG   DISEASE: Streptococcus suis infection
Entry
H01406                      Disease                                

Name
Streptococcus suis infection
Description
Streptococcus suis, a Gram positive coccus, is a zoonotic pathogen that infects pigs and can occasionally cause serious infections in humans. The first case in humans was reported in Denmark in 1968. Human infection with S. suis occurs sporadically in Europe and North-America and case reports suggest that it is almost exclusively related to occupational exposure to pigs or pork products. Incidences of human infection with S. suis are greater in S.E. Asia and China. Meningitis is the most common presentation in humans, but septicaemia and endocarditis are also seen.
