Abstract

We present two cases of non-capsulated hepatobiliary infection and review the literature. Such cases are rare, and prior to routine immunization against serotype b invasive disease was largely caused by capsulated strains. The epidemiology of invasive infections has changed and the number of cases of intra-abdominal and hepatobiliary infection may be underestimated due to current microbiological processing practices.
