Abstract: Sickle cell disease (SCD) was found in 10% of children with bacterial meningitis (BM) in Luanda, 5-fold more than in the general population. BM children with SCD versus BM children without SCD had higher inflammatory markers, more often had pneumococcal meningitis (71% vs. 39%), and either died (39% vs. 22%) or had a longer hospital stay (15 vs. 11 days).
