164 hemocultures of patients suspected of sepsis of undefined cause admitted at the Critical Care Unit and at the Intermediate Care Unit of "Dr. Salvador Allende" Hospital, in Cerro Municipality, Havana City, were studied in order to determine by quantitative bacteriological technique of hemocultures the origin of the sepsis by intravascular catheterism. 2 samples of hemocultures were taken . l was obtained by peripheral venipuncture and the other by indwelling catheter. The samples were processed by quantitative bacteriological technique. It was found that in 48.39 % of the cases the sepsis was produced by the intravenous catheter, whereas in 51.61 % the focus of infection had another localization. The most frequently isolated microorganisms were 10 strains of S. aureus (32.26 %), 7 strains of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (22.58 %) and 6 strains of non-fermenting bacilli (19.35 %)
