Predicting bacteremia in children with cancer and fever in chemotherapy-induced neutropenia: results of the prospective multicenter SPOG 2003 FN study


Agyeman, P; Aebi, C; Hirt, A; Niggli, F K; Nadal, D; Simon, A; Ozsahin, H; Kontny, U; Kühne, T; Beck Popovic, M; Leibundgut, K; Bodmer, N; Ammann, R A (2011). Predicting bacteremia in children with cancer and fever in chemotherapy-induced neutropenia: results of the prospective multicenter SPOG 2003 FN study. The Pediatric Infectious Disease Journal, 30(7):e114-e119.

Abstract

This reassessment score, simplified into a low-risk checklist of 4 routinely accessible characteristics, identifies pediatric patients with FN at risk for bacteremia. It has the potential to contribute to the reduction of use of antimicrobials in, and to shorten the length of hospital stays of pediatric patients with cancer and FN.
