DE LA GUERRA-ACEBAL, CARLA et al. Cervical spondylodiscitis caused by Streptococcus agalactiae and Parsonage-Turner syndrome. CES Med. [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.1, pp.101-108. ISSN 0120-8705.

Spondylodiscitis caused by streptococcus agalactiae has been traditionally considered an infrequent disease since S. agalactiae is a pathogenic microorganism conventionally in gestational and perinatal period. However it is producing an increase in the incidence of invasive infections in immunocompetent adults. Also Parsonage-Turner syndrome or brachial radiculitis is a rare disorder and is characterized by pain followed by weakness in the distribution of the upper brachial plexus. We report one case and review the literature.

Keywords : Cervical spondylodiscitis; Bacteriemia; Streptococcus agalactiae; Group B estreptococal; Parsonage-Turner Syndrome.
