Abstract

Background: Bloodstream infections caused by multidrug-resistant, Gram-negative (MDRGN) bacteria represent a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. Prompt diagnosis and appropriate empiric treatment are the most important determinants of patient outcome. The objective of our study was to assess the epidemiology and clinical outcome of MDRGN sepsis in a tertiary-care pediatric hospital during a 12-month period. Methods: It was a retrospective, observational study of MDRGN bacteremia including all patients
