PMID: 35148717.


Invasive meningococcal disease (IMD) is a rare but severe bacterial infection, of which a high proportion of survivors are affected by sequelae. In Denmark, IMD is a notifiable disease and data collection on sequelae information has been automated, enabling studies of sequelae due to IMD diagnosed after discharge. The aim of this study was to examine possible determinants for sequelae after IMD and to describe the distribution of sequelae by age, serogroup and clinical presentation, for all cases in Denmark from 2005-2020.
