To determine the importance of bacteremia in hospitalized patients with diarrhea in Bangladesh, from September 1982 through August 1983 the authors obtained blood for culture from 1,824 patients who were suspected of having sepsis.
Nontyphoid bacteremia occurred in 243 patients.
The most common pathogens were the Enterobacteriaceae.
When compared with an equal number of control patients without bacteremia, bacteremic patients were significantly more likely to be under 1 year of age.
