During 1975--77 Hemophilus vaginalis bacteremia occurred post partum in eight previously healthy women. Seven had been admitted for delivery at term and one because of threatened abortion. Six underwent cesarean section. Post-partum pyrexia and neutrophilia were the main features. All the patients recovered uneventfully while receiving antibiotics. H. vaginalis is an infrequent agent of bacteremia; it affects predominantly women after obstetric trauma.
