Abstract
We describe a 4-year-old boy with Cornelia de Lange syndrome who died of se ptic shock caused by Moraxella catarrhalis bacteremia. At autopsy there was evidence of acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis with abscesses. Gram-negative d iplococci were seen histologically in the abscesses and pancreatic ducts.
