– Influenza B/Streptococcal co-infection complicated by organizing pneumonia

Organizing pneumonia is a rare complication of influenza infection that has substantial morbidity.

We report the first case of organizing pneumonia associated with influenza B and Streptococcus pneumoniae coinfection that had significant improvement with corticosteroid treatment. The clinical and radiological features of organizing pneumonia associated with this coinfection are similar to those after influenza A infection. Timely use of systemic glucocorticosteroids would be of benefit in promoting resolution for influenza-associated organizing pneumonia.
