  1. Role of the complete blood count in detecting occult focal bacterial infection in the young febrile child.

    Article - En anglais

    Previous studies of the value of the complete blood count (CBC) in distinguishing viral from bacterial infection in young febrile children have failed to exclude children with clinically evident bacterial infection and thus have inflated the positive predictive value of the test for occult focal infection.

    We prospectively studied 2492 children 3-24 months of age who presented to a children's hospital emergency department between March 1989 and August 1990 with fever (>=38.0oC) of acute (<=4 days) onset but no evident bacterial focus of infection, 433 (17.4%) of whom received a CBC.
