A knowledge of the bacterial ecology of a haematology unit should help in the management of the febrile patient with or without neutropenia. We studied the prevalence and the susceptibility profiles of bacteria isolated during a six-year period among patients hospitalized in a 44-bed haematology unit. Antibiotic use over this period was also studied. The most prevalent bacteria were coagulase-negative staphylococci (CNS) (35.1%), Escherichia coli (11.4%), Staphylococcus aureus (9.9… CONTINUE READING
