Antibiotic resistance is associated with longer bacteremic episodes and worse outcome in febrile neutropenic children with cancer.

Abstract

PURPOSE With the increasing emergence of multiresistant pathogens, better understanding of these infections is necessary. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the risk factors associated with isolating a multiresistant organism (MRO) from a positive blood culture in pediatric cancer patients with febrile neutropenia (F&N), and to study its impact on… (More)
