OBJECTIVE: Meningococcal disease due to Neisseria meningitidis of serogroup W135 (N. meningitidis W135) is increasing in France. Clinical and outcome data concerning these infections in children are scarce.

PATIENTS: We report 5 cases of children hospitalised in our unit between June 2000 and December 2002 for N. meningitidis W135 infection.

CASE REPORTS: Among these 5 children aged 19 months to 11 years, 3 presented with a primary meningitis and 4 with primary or secondary extra-meningeal involvement, articular in 3 cases, pericardial in 2 cases and ocular in one case. The outcome was favourable without after effects in 4 cases, marked by a resistant prolonged post-meningococcal inflammatory syndrome.

COMMENTS: Extra-meningeal septic and/or non septic complications are frequent and a prolonged post meningococcal inflammatory syndrome is reported. In N. meningitidis W135 infections a careful clinical evaluation of potential extra-meningeal complications and a long term follow up of children are needed.
