In a retrospective study of 329 cases of nosocomial urinary tract infection caused by Serratia marcescens, 16 (4.9%) were fatal. Female gender (OR, 3.9; CI95, 1.3-11.7; P = .014) and secondary S. marcescens bacteremia (OR, 6.5; CI95, 1.5-28.6; P = .013) were independent prognostic factors for fatality.
