Bloodstream infection caused by vancomycin-resistant enterococcus (VRE) is associated with very high mortality among allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant (alloHSCT) recipients. However, it remains unclear whether VRE bloodstream infection directly causes mortality in the early posttransplant period or is simply a marker of poor outcome. To determine the risk factors for VRE bloodstream infection and its effect on outcome, we followed 92 patients screened for stool colonization by VRE… CONTINUE READING
