Risk factors for and outcomes of bloodstream infection caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species in children



Risk factors for and outcomes of bloodstream infection caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species in children



Pediatrics 115(4): 942-949



Objective. The increasing prevalence of infections caused by extended- spectrum beta-lactamase producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species (ESBL-EK) has become a growing concern in the hospitalized patient population. Previous studies on risk factors for infection with ESBL-EK have mainly focused on adult populations, and these findings may not be relevant among the pediatric population that experiences a unique set of health care exposures and underlying conditions.
