This study determined the prevalence of Streptococcus pneumoniae among patients attending federal medical center Bida. The data of 1719 patients aged 1-100 was obtained from the record books of bacteriology department from 2014-2018.A total sample number of 119 was diagnosed positive for both males. 63(54.10%)and females56(45.90%) patients respectively. Based on the age groups and gender positivity prevalence was 0.06%,0.12% (1-10 years), 0.41%,0.58% (11-20 years),0.52%,0.41% (21-30 years), 0.70%, 0.58% (31-40 years), 0.70%,0.76% (41-50 years), 0.70%,0.58% (51-60 years), 0.47%,0.06% (61-70 years).71-80 years,81-90 years, and 90-100 years recorded 0.06%, 0.12%; 0.00%, 0.06%; 0.06%, 0.00% respectively. 3.66% and 3.26% is the total positivity prevalence for both males and females respectively. Furthermore, the prevalence revealed that streptococcus pneumonia affect certain age groups than the others. This suggested that some individuals are more prone to this infection perhaps due to their immune response. This has remain one of the major cause of morbidity and mortality even though there is an advancement in the treatment regime, diagnosis and preventive measures put in place.
