Streptococcus pneumoniae is responsible for a high level of morbidity and mortality, especially among children. For a long time, only the polysaccharide vaccine was available against pneumococcal infections, but in the last decade special conjugate vaccines were developed for paediatric use. These vaccines have made a deep impact on serotype distribution all over the world, by suppressing those serotypes included in the vaccines, while new, previously rare types emerged. These changes have been monitored closely in numerous publications all over the world. Nevertheless, data on pneumococcal serotypes in Hungary were mostly published in Hungarian, therefore not available in the international literature. In this meta-analysis, our aim was to collect and summarise all available data, and try to follow the changes observed after the introduction of the conjugate vaccines.
