Summary This study provided a comprehensive analysis regarding clinical and microbiological characteristics of pneumococcal infections in Asian countries. Despite the introduction of 7-valent pneumococcal conjugate vaccine (PCV7) in Asian countries, the coverage rate of PCV7 in Asian countries was lower than that reported from western countries and macrolide resistance and multidrug resistance still remain high in the region
