The incidence rate (IR) of bloodstream infections (BI) and invasive mycoses (IM) during chemotherapy for paediatric acute lymphoblastic (ALL) or non-lymphoblastic leukaemias (AnLL) was evaluated for 153 BI and 22 IM diagnosed during 143,668 patient-days at risk from January 1988 to December 2000. IR, the number of episodes/100 days at risk, was 0.315 for AnLL and 0.092 for ALL (P < 0.001) with significant changes reflecting the intensity of anti-ALL chemotherapy.
