This study was devised to look at trends in the microbiological spectrum and susceptibility patterns of pathogens causing bacteraemia in paediatric febrile oncology patients. The retrospective study compared various microbiological aspects recorded for febrile oncology neutropenic patients treated with two different empirical antibiotic regimens (ceftazidime plus gentamicin during 1998-1999 and piperacillin/tazobactam plus amikacin during 2000-2002). Eighty-one bacteraemic episodes occurred in… CONTINUE READING
