To determine the epidemiologic features and clinical outcomes of bloodstream infections caused by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates, cases of bacteremia caused by these organisms in children were analyzed retrospectively. Among the 157 blood isolates recovered from 1993 to 1998 at the Seoul National University Children's Hospital, the prevalence of ESBL production was 17.9% among the E. coli isolates and 52.9% among the K… CONTINUE READING
