原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Objective(#br)To evaluate the epidemiological profile of invasive meningococcal disease (IMD), meningococcal meningitis, and Neisseria meningitidis carriers in Latin America.(#br)Methods(#br)A systematic review was conducted to identify and analyze studies published in 2008–2018. Incidence rates, case fatality rates (CFRs), and the relative distribution of cases per serogroup by country were assessed.(#br)Results(#br)Meningococcal surveillance in Latin America differs among countries, and most systems are based on passive sentinel surveillance. Thirty-nine studies were selected. In 2006, the incidence rate of IMD per 100 000 inhabitants was highest in Brazil (1.9), followed by Uruguay (1.3), Chile (0.8), Argentina (0.7), Colombia and Venezuela (0.3 each), and Mexico (0.06)....
