Abstract:

Neonates are immune-compromised individuals who are prone to infection. Neonatal sepsis has significant morbidity and mortality. This study is a retrospective study to assess the most important bacteria and the risk factors responsible for bloodstream in infection in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Mansoura University Hospital, Egypt. Gram negative bacteria were responsible for most cases of neonatal blood stream infections with Klebsiella pneumoniae accounting for the majority of cases (47.2 %). late-onset sepsis (61.6%) was more common than early-onset sepsis. The preterm infants represented 63% of the overall studied cases. Comparison between demographic data of cases with neonatal sepsis caused by Klebsiella and those caused by other bacteria revealed that there were no statistical significant differences between the two groups.
