Resumen

DIAZ ALVAREZ, Manuel; AHMED ABBOUD, Younan  y  MARTINEZ CANALEJO, Humberto. Evaluación del recién nacido febril y predicción de infección del tracto urinario. Rev Cubana Pediatr [online]. 1998, vol.70, n.4, pp.170-175. ISSN 0034-7531.

Three hundred and ninety nine consecutive febrile newborns (N)s without focalization signs (WFS), patients of the Neonatology Service of the "Juan Manuel Márquez" Teaching Pediatric Hospital between February 1992 and May 1995 were studied, with the idea of determining through the evaluation of the same if clinical and laboratory data existed, in order to identify more individually the probability of urinary tract infection (UTI) with regard to other severe bacterial infections (SBI). The data analyzed were those included in the SBI low risk criteria created by that institution, to which the masculine sex was added. It was found that the data significantly related to UTI were leukocyturia, masculine sex, and accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), while the data for other SBI were perinatal backgrounds of sepsis risk, toxic condition, recurrent or persistent fever, and accelerated ESR. A result of this evaluation is that the probability of UTI with respect to other SBI can be orientated with greater individuality.
