AB  - OBJECTIVE: To increase awareness of Kingella kingae infections in children by
      presenting four cases seen at the Gold Coast Hospital, Southport, Queensland, and
      reviewing the literature. METHODOLOGY: Records of the four cases were reviewed
      and relevant information described. A MEDLINE search of the English literature
      from 1983 to 1998 was conducted. RESULTS: Osteoarticular infections are the
      commonest type of invasive paediatric infection but bacteraemia and endocarditis 
      also occur. Isolation of the organism is difficult but inoculation of the
      specimen into enriched blood culture systems improves the recovery rate. The
      majority of isolates are sensitive to beta-lactam antibiotics but resistance has 
      been described. CONCLUSIONS: Kingella kingae infections in children are more
      common than previously recognized. The organism should be actively sought in any 
      child with suspected osteoarticular infections. Recommended empiric therapy is a 
      third generation cephalosporin until susceptibility to penicillin is confirmed.
