Issue: 
Pages: 
80–4

Urinary Tract Infection in Neonates with Serious Bacterial Infections Admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
101–05
Synopsis: 
Urinary tract infection is an important cause of serious bacterial infection in neonates affecting 1 in 3 babies with proven bacterial infection and may be the first indicator of underlying structural abnormalities. The absence of specific distinguishing clinical features makes it necessary to include urine cultures in the sepsis evaluation of neonates presenting with symptoms suggestive of sepsis.


ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiology of urinary tract infection in neonates, with serious bacterial infections, admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies.
