Neonatal bacterial infections: magnitude and clinical aspects



Neonatal bacterial infections: magnitude and clinical aspects



Revista Chilena de Pediatria 60(5): 262-266



A prospective study on major bacterial infections (MBI) has been made over a six-month period in a neonatal unit. Incidence of MBI was 6.8 per 1,000 live births. Rates were significantly higher in low (57/1,000) and very low-birth-weight newborns (200/1,000). Septicemia occurred most frequently with group B hemolyticus streptococcus and staphylococcus aureus as the commonest infecting organisms. In 19/33 haematologic studies abnormal neutrophilic cell counts, thrombocytopenia or both were seen. Case/fatality rate was 50% in this series.
