Incidence and outcome of group B streptococcal sepsis in infants in Switzerland. The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 35(2):222-224.

Abstract

The incidence and outcome of group B streptococcal (GBS) sepsis were assessed prospectively between September 2011 and February 2015 in all tertiary care pediatric hospitals of Switzerland. We describe a low incidence of GBS early-onset sepsis (0.12/1000 livebirths) and a predominance of GBS late-onset sepsis (0.36/1000 livebirths), a pattern that has not been reported in other countries.
